Two visitors attempt Longs Peak thanks to the Moose Creek Cafe

Tuesday 30th of July, two young men visiting and working in Walden, CO, will attempt to climb one of the fourteeners of Colorado : Longs Peak, 14259 ft.
With the help of the Moose Creek Cafe, Geoffrey Obry (Alps, France) and Cody Hess (Texas) will leave from Grand Lake for a 5-days hike in the Rocky Mountain NP and thus terminate their stay in Walden by a challenging adventure.

Longs Peak is not the most difficult neither the steepest but overhanging Denver it’s one of the most emblematic of this part of the Rockies, and it’s still over 14000ft!

Cody and Geoffrey are travelling across America thanks to Help Exchange, website that connect hosts and travelers. They stayed in Walden one month working at the Moose Creek Cafe, and this one decided to help them to achieve this new adventure.

I stayed in Walden 6 weeks now and I met a lot of wonderful people. It means a lot to me to be supported by the Moose Creek Cafe and people of Walden to climb one of the fourteeners, what was one of my goal coming in America. I want to go up there and be able to say “I have been over the top of the Rockies thanks to the Moose Creek Cafe and people of Walden”.

Not many people get to experience the travelers life style, I’ve been on the road for over a month now and here in Walden I’ve learned so much and experienced some amazing things. This hike will be one story I hope I can tell my grandchildren.

“It has been a wonderful and rewarding experience to have hosted so many young people over the past several years. When Geoffrey and Cody came and said they wanted to climb Longs Peak to the summit I thought what a great feat for these two travelers who have crossed into our path. They asked if I could help to sponsor them by giving them food for their journey and after all the assistance they have given, I had to say yes. “Just bring lots of pictures back”, I told them. Wishing them God speed in their adventures.” James C.
