Today Charlie and I climbed 14,308 ft. Uncompahgre Peak in the San Juan Range. We drove in his Jeep Wrangler on a rugged 4WD road up to the upper trailhead and camped. We hit the Nellie Creek trail around 5:30AM and made the summit around 8:45AM. Made it back to the trailhead around 11:30AM. Approx. 8 miles round trip. Had a great time on a great peak! 14er #28.

Beautiful day, beautiful high alpine terrain with flowers blooming everywhere! Made it about 1/2 up the 4WD road to have a ~10 mile hike with ~3300 vert. Easy and perfect...

Nellie Creek route in the moonlight to make it up for sunrise. Amazing views and a couple of foxes near the summit.

Hard to spell, but not to climb... but it was quite a long approach from the campsite by Matterhorn Creek. But still shorter than the approach from Nellie Creek TH.

Matterhorn Creek trail offered 12.8 miles of an easy 3,900' rise over run-out. Grassy trail has good views of nearby San Juan peaks ...kinda looks like your in the Swiss-Alps.

Almost had a heart attack on the way down when a hawk waited till I was about two feet away to fly off. I had not seen it and it really startled me!

Absolutely beautiful hike from Matterhorn Creek (15-16 miles RT). Views were amazing and I'm definitely going back to do this one again.

Climbed it the day after a snow storm rolled through, some deep snow in places but the snow made the views even better.

Two-day overnighter starting at the beginning of the 4WD road. Camped just below treeline and was on the summit by 7:45a the following morning. Well worth the effort, despite limited views on the summit. My first true 14er!!
