Eureka Basin Tour  Sucess!

Camped in Eureka Gulch, followed the south fork of the Animas to Dome Mtn's north ridge, then over to Tower, East Storm, Proposal, Emery and Bonita before following the Eureka road and some bushwhacking back to our camp. Long loop, but a rewarding day!

East Face, Minnehaha Basin  Sucess!

The wildflowers were positively OUT OF CONTROL on this hike. Completely amazing. The east slope was impressively steep. There are a few loose sections just below the sub-summit. Large groups should either wear helmets, practice very cautious/aware travel or both. I started a nice rock slide, but fortunately my partner and I were traveling safely and she was out of my fall line. The little causeway to the main summit was an exciting surprise for me. For people with out fear of heights, this little causeway might be *nothing*, but for me it was fun. I took it slow, steady and deliberate. The gosh, the alpine wild flowers were amazing.

Bonita, Hanson & UN 13,075 from Eureka  Sucess!

All I wanted for my birthday were some San Juan 13ers and I got them! My 1st trip to the San Juans in winter was fantastic. The route was reasonably safe, but probably shouldn't be attempted in high avy risk times.
