Evans and Bierstadt via the Sawtooth

Luke and Brent ditched class one day (way to spend that tuition: every day costs $100) and climbed Mount Bierstadt, a 14'er. Once on top, they saw the conditions were favorable for traversing the treacherous "sawtooth" and climb another 14'er, Mount Evans. After gaining the final summit, Brent succumbed to mild altitude sickness, and they missed their required ethics course that afternoon, for which they received a slap on the wrist. Not very ethical. One picture has Luke crouching on the summit of Bierstadt holding the tube which holds the summit log. Behind him is Evan's peak, the next destination. The 2 pictures of the sawtooth (the serrated ridge that connects Bierstadt and Evans) they traversed are somewhat self-explanatory.

My Dad, brother, Alicia, and I hiked Bierstadt two summers ago. We also went up Mt. Evans, but I must admit that that one was by car, haha.
