1998 Subaru Outback with Colorado 14'ers Mountains

My brother Myke (he's in the car) and I had camped out a meadow just East of Buena Vista, Colorado and here's what the Collegiate Peaks 14'ers look like in the morning as the sun rises on them - quite stunning and the picture doesn't do it justice. We climbed Mt. Princeton (which is in the middle) later that day.

BTW, most folks most people camp out in the KOA campground that is way below us ... so they don't have the "across the valley" stunning view that we had; nor do they have the privacy and solitude that this meadow offers. My 4WD 1998 Subaru Outback station wagon had no problem rally'ing off-road to this campsite and the hiking trailhead later in the day. If you enjoy Colorado 14'ers, check out the Longs Peak climbing saga and I even have a few pictures from Mt. Rainier in Washington State.
