Light Winter  Sucess!

Took advantage of a light start to winter with a group of 7 up the standard route from Winfield. Typically the winter maintenance on the road ends 8 mile below this point, so what is normally a 26 mile winter hike was only 10. Can't complain about that! Some new snow might change the ability to drive the road soon, recommend 4WD due to snowpack/icy spots.

Stnd and North Ridge  Sucess!

Started off by hiking Huron Peak and hiked north to summit Brown's Peak and UN 13,456. Great weather, sunny and long.

Huron from Winfield  Sucess!

What a great day. Sunny skies, warm and no wind...in mid-December.
Was a great early winter climb with no one else around to speak of. Great views too!

First Climb

I am from the mid-west and Huron was my first climb and first time ever in Colorado. I was completely unprepared for the wind, cold, and altitude. I'm sad to say I turned back just below the false summit.

Spring on Huron  Sucess!

Poor snow on approach, poor snow above treeline, but great views! The 4X4 trail was very muddy and made for some extra fun.

Mainiac  Sucess!

Rough 4WD approach. Went with Kevin, a Maine flatlander, but he did great. Got a little off route in 8" of wet snow, but made the summit.

Standard Route  Sucess!

Wonderful bluebird day for a mountain hike. Huron probably has the best summit view that I have ever experienced! I think that I was able to see all the way to the San Juans!

Standard route from Winfield  Sucess!

What pretty peak with bomber views from the summit! I really like the wide, green bowl between treeline and talus.

Early season on Huron: absolutely spectacular  Sucess!

Spent a stunning morning climbing Huron with Matt Payne from 100summits.com. Took in views of the 3 apostles, then traversed to Browns Peak. Didn't feel so hot due to lack of good conditioning, but made it up and down without any real issues. Trip report: http://intheexpanse.com/mountaineering/huron-browns-june-2010
