Epica7 years....  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2004


When I lived in CO I always hiked up a mountain on the anniversary of my husband's death. This was the 7th year..... An amazing day!

Date Climbed: Sep 18, 2009


I climbed Elbert as my hundredth distinct peak, and in the process I set a new personal height record. It's a plain mountain, but it offers wonderful views in all directions.

Date Climbed: Sep 6, 2009


Climbed with 7 other friends via the northeast trail. It was the first 14er for all of us. This was my second attempt, the first being in April 2008 with snowshoes which ended up not going too well.

Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2009


I spent the night at the trailhead to enable an early start of 5 am. I passed one person and was the first on the summit from my route. It was cold and windy but very rewarding. See my Trip Report about doing seven 14ers in eight days.

Went with my good friend from college and native Coloradan Elise. Both coming from lowlands and being a bit out of shape, took us 6 hours to summit (via the NE ridge), reaching the top in blustery conditions and flurries. Compared to Whitney, this was a surprisingly steep trail in some places!

The colors of fall were becoming quite brilliant already this day. We got hit by a bit of graupel. Pretty typical for this time of year: Graupel and cold near the summit, heat at timberline. Partner: Extraordinarily grumpy (though loveable) husband.

Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2009


I hadn't exercised at all for the past 3 months and had gained 15 lbs while working in Qatar. This was my first outing since then, and it worked out very nicely with a 2:40 hrs summit time! Nice views from the summit.

Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2009


Drove up from Albuquerque in the morning, met some friends who had driven in from Utah, started hiking at about 2:45 pm and made it to the summit to see the sunset. It was my first 14er, but hopefully not the last.

Great hike with Hootie. 2:48 from the car. Weather rolled in while on the summit. Things change quickly in the Rockies!

msihlMt. Elbert via South Mt. Elbert Trail   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2009


Climbed with Christoph and Guy. Started at 9 am a little above South Mt. Elbert trailhead, summited 12.45 pm. Thunder storm rolling in immediately after reaching the summit, so we had to run down....easy walk-up, but I felt the altitude more than usual, maybe due to very bad sunburn I got the day before.

Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2009


Hiked this with my 10yo son on Saturday, 4th of July. Our 3rd state highpoint in a 6-day span (also AZ & NM). We had planned to hike this on Friday the 3rd, but it was raining in the morning so we postponed the hike. There was quite a parade of people going up the trail on the 4th of July.
