Getting high the easy way  Sucess!

From Berthoud, this is a pretty easy acclimation hike. Basically the definition of class 1 on the way up, you follow a wonderful dirt road. Ugly summit, but amazing views! There is a small trail just north of the utility poles if you need a bailout option for the descent.

from Berthoud  Sucess!

The first of seven peaks I hiked (eleven if you count repeats on the return) on a trip along the continental divide - together with Bancroft, Parry (twice), Eva (twice), Wittier, Breckenridge, and Flora (3 times, with a night on the summit). A very long day up high!

From Berthoud Pass  Sucess!

Bummed that we didn't make it over to Flora but the day was getting long, etc. Weather started out snowy with low visibility but quickly improved.

Good warm-up  Sucess!

Good warm-up with my new fiance. This was her first Colorado peak and first peak over 7,000 feet! Had some snow on the way down and got to see some impressive cornices on the west ridge of Flora.

wind tunnel  Sucess!

4/12/08- slogged up colorado mines from berthoud pass in a windstorm with jamie. we made it halfway to flora before giving up and running home. whoa, it was windy; i was half expecting random rocks to fly across our path!

2/26/10- scooted over colorado mines on my way to the 13er, mount flora. area seemed the same way i left it 2 years prior as the wind and snow had teamed up with low visibility to make for a doozy of an outing.

Co. Mines, Flora and Breckinridge via Berthoud Pass  Sucess!

Hiked up Colorado Mines, Flora and Breckinridge, and made an attempt at Cone, from Berthoud Pass following the Continental Divide Trail most of the way. Easy hike on a nice day, although dark clouds started moving in so we only got about half way to Cone before turning back. While the Trails Illustrated map shows the trail summiting Breckinridge, it skirts the summit to the north.

Twice in winter  Sucess!

2/4/06 - Started out a nice winter day at Berthoud Pass, but conditions were nasty up on the ridge. Climbed Colorado Mines, Flora and Breckinridge but decided to save Eva & Witter for some other (perhaps more pleasant) day.

2/28/10 - Return trip, this time in slightly better weather. Climbed Colorado Mines, Flora, Eva & Witter. Heavy snow fell on the descent and an avy later closed the Berthoud Pass road.
