nice photos lane, well written
Thanks, attm! They really are an amazing group. Now someone needs to put up Babcock!
Nice photo! You must have summitted right after the first big storm last year.
Hesperas looks nice. Nice one Lyane!
Thanks, SVMK! Yes, it is a beautiful little range that doesn't get much visitation.
Nice page for an obscure range!
Thanks, sisyphus! An improvised register on Lavender had maybe 10 entries since 2000, though I know of others who had summitted without registering.
Nice Addition. Have you a lot of experience with the La Plata Mountains?
Thanks, Jon. In July 2004 I summitted Hesperus from the north. It's an impressive looking peak, but the scree slog up to its west ridge was close to unbearable! Someday I'd like to try Babcock; have to get motivated for the 8-hr drive though!
Great addition to the site.
Thanks very much! Layne
Layne, great page. I have not been in the San Juans for over 20 years, but pages like this make me want to get back.
This is your second page on SP????? Fantastic job, and great photos too!
Nice mountain page. Great view of Hesperus Mountain.
Thanks, mountaingazelle! BTW, I notice you're doing the Utah county hp's. Have you seen cohp.org? It's fun to put up a completion map. I'm hoping to get my first Utah hp in August when I head out there for a wedding.
Yes, I have seen cohp.org. I am not a die-hard county highpointer like some people are. I just climb them if I happen to be in the area. Which one are you planning on climbing while in Utah?
