“Oh sh!t, the alarm clock didn’t go off, it’s 6:15 a.m. get up”, Amy announced. This was one of the worst wake-up calls I have received in quite awhile. I was supposed to meet the 14erworld gang at Bear Lake at 6:30 a.m. for our hike of Hallett Peak and Flattop Mountain. There was no way that was going to happen, so I called Chris on his cell phone and told him not to wait for me, that I would catch them on the trail if I could. I quickly got dressed, grabbed some breakfast to eat in the car, and was out the door to Estes Park around 6:30 a.m. I think I set a new speed record from Boulder to Estes Park and found myself at Bear Lake just after 7:30 a.m. I quickly loaded my pack and hit the trail towards the lake.
