Long’s Peak Summit Hike: Approaching Boulder Field
Here are some more photos from my hike to the summit of Long’s Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park last Friday. This set captures the approach to Boulder Field at 12,760 feet nearly 6 miles into the hike. As the name implies, Boulder Field is a massive field of giant size boulders. There is a base camp there so you can actually camp out and hike the summit the next morning instead of doing it all in one day as I did.
Here we get the first good shots of the face of Long’s Peak known as the Diamond. You can still see a good amount of snow and ice in some of the large crevasses. To the right of the second and third photos you can see the Keyhole. This is where you pass through to the trail on the back side of the peak. It looks deceptively small here. In my next post I’ll post some close ups of the Keyhole and you’ll see what I mean—it’s huge!
