Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2011


This was our family's third high point. We took a detour during our trip to Utah to visit Mount Sunflower. It was a great break for the kids to stretch their legs after nine hours on the road. Every place has it's unique beauty, and Mt. Sunflower was very enjoyable.

It was a close one. We managed to just survive getting mauled to death by man eatting mad cows. i shall never forget the look in there eyes. That was only the beginning. After we a few pitches up the deadly north face a freak midwest electric ice storm blew in. we had to bivy for like 3 and a half mins before pushing onto the summit. the winds were at a roaring 5 miles an hour. we were almost blown off except hotoven was able to build an anchor on the the metal sunflower sculpture. once on top there was a rogue cow looking for trouble and flying bugs that tried to drain us of our blood and our lives. oh mt. sunflower, i shall never forget thee. some of the most scenic views our eyes have ever gazed upon.

The hardest thing about doing this "peak" is finding it, and that wasn't very difficult.

Absolutely perfect day. Thunderclouds just overhead and to the east, and sun setting in the West. Grateful for the Harold Family that they let us enjoy this "summit".

Stopped by on my way home from Colorado. Beautiful day for midwinter. 50 degree weather and sun. I found the open grassland of this highpoint in complete contrast to the Rocky Mountains but quite beautiful.

This was a truly remarkable place. The shades of color on the winter plains were in constant flux, changing with the motions of the clouds.

After flying into Denver, we detoured east to visit the Kansas highpoint before heading back west to Leadville and Mount Elbert. It looked like some deer had bedded down the night before in the tall grass around the monument, and some cows had made a special effort to poop near the picnic table. HP23
