Easy summit  Sucess!

We started from the 4WD trailhead, which cut off 3.5 miles RT. Lots of wildflowers above treeline. About 50 feet shy of the summit, we heard our first rumble of thunder, so we only stayed on top for 3-4 pictures, and got down below the ridgeline quickly. Fortunately, the thunder died down, and we made it back down to the TH before steady rain came.

Sunrise on the Summit  Sucess!

First one up and down the mountain today, of course I started at 2:30 am. My first sunrise above 14k (barely, but it counts)! Wanted to beat the oncoming thunderstorms so I decided to catch the sunrise and although it was cloudy, it was great! Woods are spooky by oneself and with no moon. The scenery on the descent was gorgeous - wildflowers are blooming everywhere! Didn't even see a single thundercloud. Guess I beat 'em!

First Solo  Sucess!

Late start of the season without my common hiking partner who returned to Europe. From now, my fourteener progress slowed down.

started winter 2012 with a lovely hike up huron's west ridge. an extremely low snowpack allowed me to save 16 miles of hiking by driving to winfield. here's to a great winter!

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.

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.
