King Mountain

Distance: ~11.1 miles
Elevation Gain: ~2000'
Time: ~4 hours

This was only my 4th closest, unclimbed, ranked peak, but was closest in terms of driving distance by far.  ~80 miles from my residence and just over an hour from Fort Collins in a 2WD vehicle, its hard to complain that I hiked over 11 miles for an 8er.  I found a register on top in the cairn on the north end of the summit.  Only 1 large party from 1973 signed in listing how many fish they caught.  I couldn't sign in because there was nothing left to write with.  I thought the boulder on the south end was higher.
