Moogie737Labor Day delight  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 4, 2006


#1 9-4-06 With Eric and Any F., former Aconcagua hiking partners, I left the northeast TH at 5:35 a.m. Three and one half hours later I reached the summit where a grand, slightly tattered American flag was rippling in the stiff but bearable breeze. My friends arrived about half an hour later, and together we celebrated a beautiful day with about a dozen other enthusiasts including three dogs. #2 9-1-12 Mit toller Partnerin from north TH. Wind. Up & down before torrential rains "dampened" the day! Always, always do this thing early is the watch word. #3 6-24-13 Noch einmal mit toller Patnerin am Tag nach einer Besteigung des Berges Massive. Gutes Wetter.

linganaSummit on the second attempt  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 3, 2006


This was the second attempt on Elbert, after a winter attempt in last Nov.
Did an acclamatization hike near Aspen, from the Maroon Bells Lake to Buckskin Pass on 2nd Sept, and climbed Mt. Elbert on Sept 3rd. It was a beautiful day, a great hike, and an amazing trip, with awesome company !

Left the south trailhead at 7:00 a.m. Very nice weather at the lower level of the mountain. At 13,000 feet it was very cold, rainy and windy. Kept going. Reached the summit at 11:00 a.m. Beautiful, sunny weather at the top.

Holsti97South Mt. Elbert Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2006


Started hiking at 5:45 AM with my son Ryan. Hiked through aspen forest, then through evergreens, and then above treeline. There was some fresh snow above treeline and over 6 inches near the summit. Very pretty. Nearby mountains were white with snow. Reached the summit at 10:45 AM (Ryan at 9:50). Very cold and windy at the top. Met 4 others at the summit at about the same time (3 from the North Mt. Elbert Trail). Met several hikers on the way down, but it really wasn't that crowded. It was my first time in Colorado and I really enjoyed the scenery in the state. Leadville, Twin Lakes, and Granite are cool towns. Had filet mignon at Quincy's in Leadville. Excellent. HP #20.

Date Climbed: Aug 25, 1986


With daughter Vanessa, we camped in a meadow at 10000. This was number 14 of my 49 state high points. It was Vanessa's first overnight on a mountain higher than 10,000 feet. She eventually did 39 state highpoints.

RenardoSummit with my wife  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 16, 2004


This was my wife's second mountain ever, after topping out on Democrat a couple days earlier. We drove up the 2 miles to the real trailhead to avoid the extra hike.

I reached the summit with hiking pals, Phil Miller and Dan Spare in about three and a half hours. Beautiful weather encouraged the long walk to the top with at least 50 people at the summit. My 7th fourteener.
