On a group hike I guided, the marmots were everywhere and ready to eat our lunches if we stepped away or turned our backs. Cheeky little buggers!

Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2009


Climbed with Redcloud via the North Slopes from Lake San Cristobal Road. An easy traverse from the summit of Redcloud lasting only an hour. The last several hundred feet to the summit were the most exhausting but the view was well worth it. After enjoying a snack on the summit we headed back over Redcloud and back to the trailhead to rest up for tommorrow's next hike.

Most memorable thing from this trip was a marmot that was very friendly and chirpy about 1/2 way up :-)

Cloudy but no T-storms. Sunshine's south face looks pretty rugged from summit.

Fifth of 14 14ers in 11 days. Headed over from Redcloud and descended the NW scree. Good weather, good people, and good whiskey on the summit.

Over from Redcloud Peak on a fine trail and a fine day. Descended the Northwest Face, returning to the Silver Creek Trailhead. I didn't mind the loose scree here all that much, but it was certainly a little tricky, especially in the gully section, and I imagine that I would not have liked going up this way. My first San Juan summits, woohoo!

Date Climbed: Jul 26, 2008


I really enjoyed the hike over to this mountain. It lengthened the day a bit, but hey why not try to summit if it is so close.

A nice traverse from Redcloud Peak. Hairy snow conditions in the basin gullies made for an wet, on-edge descent.

NatashaSunshine via Mill Creek  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 25, 2008


Hiked in via Mill Creek...the most noteworthy scree I've ever encountered. Didn't hit any contiguous snow until 11,000'. ridges were heavily corniced, an ice axe was a must in short sections.

2/15/14- second winter hike of sunshine, w/mike. snowshoed all the way to sunshine's summit. set off an avalanche slamming a trekking pole into the summit's snow after returning from redcloud! really? the northern san juans have a very unstable snowpack currently.

3/8/08- finished off three years of nightmares with a winter summit of sunshine peak! summited with jamie, sarah and prakash on a beautiful march day. #25/100 winter

quite the change from a horrid weekend attempt of sunshine in march 2005. glad to have this one under my belt!
