Climbed the famous Ellingwood Ridge - huge day, it felt good to get this one done!
Awesome summit! Incredible setting... hope to do this one a few more times in my life... great mountain.
Great weekend in the Sawatch range. Saw a storm slam into Elbert around noon, lighting hitting all around it. It left the summit covered in snow. CRAZY!
almost didnt make it back...
Cooperating weather... can't ask for more.
First time I never saw anyone else on my 14er trail, but did share summit with someone who went up/down a different route. Neither of us encounted anyone else. Quiet day, was very nice. Getting very cold already!
Not another soul on the trail.
With Megan and Katie, both 10. Their first 14er!
Nice hike via Ellingwood Ridge
Not a drop of rain with a 70% chance. This was a great hike.
Ellingwood ridge. Parking lot to Summit in 6h30min. Down the standard route.
14er #2 this year.
Great variety of terrain, beautiful views through the entire hike!
Great day on the mountain. Climbed Solo
NW Ridge from CO-82. Nice aspens, especially across the way on Elbert and Lackawanna.
