Only Small Grizzly Bears.  Sucess!

While eating breakfast in Colorado City, the friendly hotel owner asked my wife and I what we were doing today. I pointed out the window to Greenhorn Mountain, and told him we were going up there. He was impressed at our ambition and said he had never been up there. His son wanted to go, but he joked that he was afraid of getting lost. With a foreign accent, he assured us that there is nothing dangerous in those mountains: "No mountain lions and only small grizzly bears." Ha ha. We hiked up the trail to the saddle south of North Peak, then across the ridge to Greenhorn. We had a nice conversation on the summit with two women who hike the peak quite often. We decended the east slopes and hiked back to the trailhead along the old road.

Amazing Day with Son  Sucess!

Started at the upper trailhead after a very long drive. My seven year old son Ian's first unassisted summit over 12,000'. Great weather day. Also did a side trip up North Peak.

Bartlett Trail  Sucess!

Saved this summit for my last Colorado county highpoint. The Bartlett Trail is still good almost to treeline. It's a long ways to hike compared to the other route, but saves a lot of driving.

Worth the Views  Sucess!

Short warm up hike in the beautiful Wet Mountains. Incredible views of 6 ranges was well worth the out of the way location.

The Greenhorn  Sucess!

This peak has incredible views for its size... the Wet Mountains are well worth a detour! Didn't care much for Bishop's Castle though...

Saw some unique spiny plants that looked something like wicked cactii/octopii (cactopuses?).

Did loop up Greenhorn Mountain Trail, scrambled down to the road, and back to the car. About 2.5 hours total. Lots of mountain goats.

Deceiving perspective from trailhead.

Snowed Out

Never made it due to waking up in crummy, snowy weather on day 2 backpack. I'll be back.

First 12er  Sucess!

I moved here in May, and kept calling the forest service daily to figure out when the road was clear to the top. Once I was confident my 2wd could make it, I went for it. I nice easy hike, with a scramble at the end, via Barlett. Beautiful day.

Beautiful hike!  Sucess!

Beautiful hike, almost entirely above timberline. Did it with North Peak. Just over 6 miles, 1500' gain, about 2.5 hours. One of my favorites of the year.

via Bartlett Trail  Sucess!

A great trail to run, which goes nearly to the summit. Gorgeous weather, and a nice finisher to Pueblo County. With Cimarron.

From the north ridge  Sucess!

This was a camping trip with my son. He decided not to climb this peak with me and waited in the truck. We then drove over to St Charles Peak area to climb it.

West face route  Sucess!

Climbed the West face and hiked over several false summit's. Went ahead and summitted the North Peak on the way back down. Really windy! What a great area for terrific views and solitude. I'd like to try the Bartlett trail from Rye next time!

West Face - Again  Sucess!

No one had signed the register from 11/23/07 to 5/19/08. Climbed the West Face which is a Class 2+ scramble. Lots of fun, too bad it was cloudy and windy again would have loved to get the clear view.

West Face  Sucess!

Turned up the west face in a snow shower. Really windy and snowing heavily on the summit. Stayed long enough to sign the register.
