Kept up a trail-run pace all the way to the summit. Beautiful backcountry.

saved San Luis for my final 14er with my wife and a great group of friends! Some early snow made for a beautiful, mellow hike. Great 14er to start or end on!

Climbed via Stewart Creek route; camped at 10,400' to get a head start. Terrific views of the La Garita and even the Weminuche.

Climbed the standard route with some people from work (including a first timer!). Got rained on coming back down, and got to see a cattle drive on the road. Gotta love a 14er where the cows outnumber the people!

The wilderness around this area is worth the long drive to get there. We started a bit late but still made the summit by around noon.

Drove into the trailhead the night before and slept it the back of my Pathfinder. A family came to summit while I was up, the father was finishing the 14’ers and save it for last so he could have his family with him. Took lots of photos for them, very cool.

Climbed up and down the West slopes. Fresh snow the night before, and another snowstorm caught us on the summit. Great fun !!!

The bugs were terrible. Unfortunately, I had to camp on a little spit of land near the beaver ponds. I burnt alot of greens to keep the smoke going. A hot day.

I saw my first moose the next day as I was hiking out.

Pointed a guy in the right direction as I was leaving the summit. I'll be back later this year to do Oregon peak.

I've climbed several San Juan peaks, but only this one had a true wilderness feel. Seeing a group of bull elk on a ridge silhouetted against the sunrise was the highlight and one of those wild moments of incontestable purity.

This is probably one of my favorite 14ers. The La Garita mountains offer a solitude that is almost unmatched in the heavily traveled backcountry of Colorado.
