Belford & Oxford  Sucess!

A great start to the 14er season! Good friends and good weather. A little steep at times, but we all made it. Shadow's (our black lab) first 14er!

Missouri Gulch  Sucess!

What a great day out with friends! The return from Oxford back to Belford is brutal, but well worth the extra effort to knock out both peaks in one push. Altogether a beautiful hike on a very well-maintained trail.

Belford/Oxford from Missouri Gulch  Sucess!

Beautiful weather. The 2200 ft glissade down the northwest gully made my weekend. Perfect glissade snow.

cold and foggy  Sucess!

Climbed in a fog bank. No views. These two mountains are endless and the trail was a steep one

Missouri Basin and Missouri Gulch  Sucess!

This was a repeat climb, as Belford was my 6th 14er, back in 1976. That time, I came in from the south to Elkhead Pass. This time I hiked up Missouri Gulch with my wife and daughter. After camping overnight, Belford made their 5th and 2nd 14ers, respectively. Had to run down to escape the rain coming in at midday, but mild weather overall.

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!

1st 14er  Sucess!

Went up the switchbacks, over the top, and down via Elkhead Pass. Perfect weather & great views.

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.
