Longs Peak exposed


Thank you for publishing the John Herrick photo of “The Narrows” on Longs Peak (“Photo contest winners,HCN, 10/3/16). During my dozen-year tenure on the Colorado Front Range, I often considered trekking to the summit of Longs, but never actually did. One of the reasons was that I’d read vague mentions of a stretch that featured significant exposure. John’s photo shows me that I’d never be able to force myself across “The Narrows.” Now I can rest easier, knowing that I’d never have made it to the summit anyway.
