Warm-up Hike  Sucess!

Had just arrived in Colorado the day before, so proud to make it over 13,000 feet on the first day. A good conditioner. Beautiful area.

Nice hike  Sucess!

Made it up pretty fast. Awesome views. My emergency decent from Paiute was when it got really interesting

Brainard Lake  Sucess!

A great day to spend with my wife on our 9th wedding anniversary. The road to Mitchell Lake TH was closed, so we hiked from the Brainard Lake parking area and added around two miles to the trip. It was fairly windy, but tolerable at the summit. It would have been rough in colder conditions. Being that it was in the mid 90's in town, we weren't anywhere near freezing up top. It was really clear and the views were fantastic. Awesome day!

WINDY!!!  Sucess!

I almost decided to turn around a few times because the winds were so high (almost 70 mph according to someone taking measurements). I reached the summit in the late afternoon with my dog, and the views were great. Passed a family with a baby while I was headed back down...hope they decided to turn back for the kid's sake.

Windy, windy, windy, but beautiful  Sucess!

I hiked from Mitchell Lake Trailhead/Beaver Creek Trailhead to the summit of Mt. Audubon. Passed a few people that summited on the way up, but most out that day decided to turn around. The slope from the saddle to the summit was snowy, in some cases knee deep between rocks, and icy - glad I had ski poles (some hikers actually had ice axes). Sustained winds of 47mph up top with gusts of 67mph - wind chill putting temps down into 10s. Beautiful view!

A great day for it....  Sucess!

in spite of a biting, cold wind above treeline. Hiked the standard trail. Encountered very few folks on a Wednesday in September. Impressive size and number of rock shelters on the summit!

Mount Audubon and Mount Naudubon  Sucess!

Climbed Mount Audubon from Brainard Lake Trailhead. Awesome views of Longs Peak, Meeker and Pagoda from the trail, as well of Paiute, Toll, Pawnee and Navajo Peaks from the summit.

I hit Naudubon "Notabon" (12,706 ft / 3,873 mt) on the way back to the trailhead since it was right there.

SE ridge  Sucess!

Beautiful day on the SE ridge of Mt. Audubon. The ridge has a great position. I only wish the class 3 section had been longer -- great fun!

Crunchy Crunchy Crampons  Sucess!

This trip was proof that the easiet mountain in the summer can be one of the hardest in winter--16 miles rt with a good road closure and snowstorm.

Success the second time  Sucess!

Windy!  Sucess!

I wanted to do the traverse to Pauite but the winds were relentless. 40 MPH gusts made for some fun walking!
