With the pup. Started west of Cottonwood Campground, ascended the northwest ridge of UN13626. Then followed the ridge west to UN13317 and UN13078. Descended Poplar Gulch trail and then down the road to the car.
I first saw these two beauties (13317 & 13299) way back in 1995 when I first went to climb Mt. Antero. At that time I was only doing the 14ers and could not think that 15 years later I might go to climb these.
The hike on the road to the 12580 ft saddle was very pleasant. The remaining 700 ft to the summit was much fun. There was a summit log (in a PVC pipe). Although it was new, water had got into it and it was soaking wet. I left it in the sun and wind for the 25 minutes that I was on the summit but it did not dry at all.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
