Fun day, long

Climbed two 14ers with some great company on Saturday. Starting at 5AM from the Missouri Gulch trailhead we made the summit of Mount Belford around 12PM. I went on to solo neighboring Mount Oxford and had to reclimb Belford on my way back. Made it back to the trailhead at 5:30 making this a very long day. 11 miles roundtrip with 6000 ft. of elevation gain over 12 hours.

Belford  Sucess!

Straightforward hike from Missouri Gulch; made the summit about 9:30AM. Good weather, good scenery, good views of the whole Sawatch Range. Unfortunately, couldn't add Mt Oxford due to time constraints, but I'll be back.

A Sawatch combo  Sucess!

2,000' initial climb up to an old log cabin remanent from mining. Switchbacks are straightforward and the view only keeps getting better above gulch. Wind kept increasing too. Combined with beautiful saddle traverse to mt. Oxford.

Great Day  Sucess!

Camped overnight south of Elkhead Pass. Climbed this with Oxford in the same day. Great views, and the weather was perfect.

Big Day  Sucess!

Looked like Princeton and Shavano hikers were getting a downpour. Glad our rumblings of thunder didn't do much.

Wind gust knocked my daughter off her feet! Dusted off and continued on to the top. A long day.

Tough combo with Oxford  Sucess!

Those two make for a hard hike. Like almost 6k vertical?? I was exhausted coming back up the saddle.
