Cold, Wet, and Foggy  Sucess!

Had planned on climbing Oxford, but due to pouring rain and very low visibility we settled for only bagging Belford.

Belford and Oxford  Sucess!

Did Belford and Oxford in one day. A long hike, but the weather held and the views were spectacular. I suppose I'll have to revisit the valley to tackle Missouri later!

Missouri - Belford - Oxford  Sucess!

Did all three in one long day. Started at 3:40am and finished around 2pm. Did Missouri first then Belford and Oxford. For the stats sounding so huge, it really wan't to bad. Personally the switchbacks at the start of the trail were the toughest part up and down. Weather held up for most the day. On Belford we followed the ElkHead pass trail to save a little elevation and then cut over too the southwest ridge on Belford. Beautiful area, definately looks worth staying a couple days up in the gulch.

Tried for Oxford  Sucess!

Made the Belford summit in horrendous winds, strong enough to knock me off my feet. Got about 100 yds down the connecting ridge to Oxford before I realized that it wasn't happening. Hopefully Oxford will still be there next time I go back.

Missouri Gulch TH, Ascend Belford W Slopes to Oxford W Ridge  Sucess!

A great hike to knock off 2 14ers. During the descent we passed a guy in real trouble - he hadn't brought enough water or food for the hike. Fortunately most of us had more than we needed and saved his bacon!
