 Grays and Torreys Combo   

I have made this trip three times now. It was still pretty easy, except the snow field below the saddle was a little scary. I tripped on the way down, so have a pretty nice bruised knee. I can play ice hockey better than I can walk. LOL. I went up this time with many members of my 14er's Fellowship through Pulpit Rock Church in Colorado Springs. We had fun. Took us three hours to summit Grays (less for the first group). Then we caught up to the first group in the saddle and chit chatted for over half an hour. About an hour between Grays and Torreys, then a few hours down. Then onto Subway. The road from I-70 up to the trail head is really rutted out. I advise 4WD only with some decent clearance. Happy Trails!!
P.S. Nice weather, but not really much wildlife. The flowers were pretty, due to all the water up there. I took a pic of the pond then tripped not long after, so thanks to the people who helped me bandage my knee.
