Mission Peak

Preston got up early today and headed east to Fremont. With plenty of water and snacks packed, he was determined to conquer Mission Peak.

All ready to go! 8:30am at trail head.

Preston made it to the summit!! Elevation 2517 feet! It was so windy up there. Preston had a hard time keeping his eyes open (or even keeping his feet on the ground!) No time for sight-seeing, Preston had to start heading down before being blown away.

The 4-hour hike was made easier by the wonderful Grip Trek Boots.

    I am curious how the boots helped? My puggle made it to mission peak without them.

    Hey Preston,
    Wow..you probably could of seen my house from up there..We live right by mission peak! Looks like you had a lot of fun. I bet you were tired after that. Mommy and Daddy said they will take me there too, but I have to get a little older first!

    Wow Preston! That looks hard. Your trekking boots look great. I am glad you didn’t blow away, you would have been a “puggle kite.” It snowed here in Colorado on Sunday, I had to wear my Nordic sweater.
