A few weeks ago I lauded the serenity to be had on a solo ski tour. Well, going with a few friends is worthwhile as well. Here, we trudge through one of the countless alpine valleys to be explored in Colorado’s mountains, en route to a peak that falls just shy of the fabled 14,000-foot elevation and thus remains empty most days of the year. We took only photos and left only tracks in the snow.
