Had a great day climbing five 13,000 foot peaks near Empire, Colorado with my brother Rob. This is a beautiful cirque that is capped by Woods (12,940 ft), Parnassus (13,574 ft), Bard (13,641 ft), Robeson (13,140 ft), and Engelmann (13,362 ft). Ok, Woods isn't quite 13 but it's close enough.
Saddle between Woods and Parnassus with Grays and Torreys in the background.
