Re: [hr100] HR 100 2002 clockwise
- Hans - Congratulations on finishing this on your own. I missed it a lot, but went up with my family on Hardrock weekend and climbed Huron and La Plata. We could pick out Uncompagre and Sneffels from the summit of Huron, way far away on the horizon.
See you at Nolans!
