with Duchess, the weather was not that great...raining, hails and lighting in the distance
still ok views, especially over Animas Forks, Uncompahgre and Wetterhorn in and out of clouds, as well as Yankee Boy Basin Peaks.
I started at Hurricane Peak, went over Tuttle to Houghton and down to Animas Forks.
Climbed as part of a long loop tour of California and Placer gulches. Started up Treasure, traversed over PT 13075 and Hanson to Hurricane then dropped to California Pass before heading over Tuttle and Houghton and back to the car.
