MattGreeneTwice in 2 days (almost)  Sucess!
Mid July 2010 - Attempted a night ascent, but a thunderstorm turned me back just above treeline. I tried to wait it out, but it lingered for a few hours. So, I descended in the dark, slept a few hours, then headed back up and tagged the summit early the next morning.

Scary afternoon. After completing Massive in the morning, was unfortunate enough to be on the summit when a lightning storm rolled in. It was the first time I'd ever heard the air "buzzing".

2nd day in Colorado. Fairly windy and cloudy, it seemed like there might be T-storm danger. But it snowed.

Hasse, Eva and Caj started in alpine style from the Elbert Creek campground and summitted in good spirit after all the false summits. Off the summit before the thunderstorms came in. The third highest state highpoint.
We continued South to Taos ski valley after climbing Mt Elbert, to make an attempt on the NM highpoint, Wheeler Peak.

On the summit in a base layer! It was SO warm! Went up the South Mt. Elbert trail, parking at the creek crossing. Sweet trail. The steepness of the first part of the trail will fool you, but the rest is cake! What a beautiful day!

Really felt the altitude 36 hours after arriving from NC. Gorgeous aspens made it worth it.

Best weather I've seen all season on my way up and down the Northeast Ridge. Not a cloud in the sky, no wind on the summit and in the high 60's on the way down. Just a little residual snow on the trail above 13K, but easily avoidable.

A wonderful day with three, maybe four clouds in the blue, blue sky and just a handful of people atop Colorado in the early morning. Lucky us! Wonderful to see the sun rise just as we passed treeline.

Can't say that this was the greatest hike but it was still satisfying to reach the top of Colorado.

Ascended via Black Cloud and descended via South Elbert (cars at both trailheads). The hike up Black Cloud was tough but beautiful with fresh snow on La Plata and Ellingwood Ridge.

Baaa. Been wanting to do this since I was a little kid. I dedicate this climb to Grandma and Grandpa, although they are gone, for introducing me to the mountains back in NC. It was 5.5 miles and 4800 ft. vertical from near the start of the 4WD road for South Elbert Trail. Nice clear views from the top.
