Number 7  Sucess!

Had three days off from work at Philmont so we went up to Colorado for some 14ers. We did Belford and Oxford together. We started at 11am and finished at 5:30pm. Great day with amazing weather conditions...a little windy but not bad

Belford-Oxford  Sucess!

The date is a guess - it was sometime before I graduated. Linked Oxford and Belford.

Standard Route  Sucess!

Belford / Oxford combo. Insane leg cramp on the way up... Powerbar to the rescue!

my 2nd 14er  Sucess!

Did this one with Dirk Summers during my 1st week in Colorado since moving out. Decided that climbing was more immediately important than finding a place to live since I could crash at his place until I found a homestead. Done via Missouri gulch, with some sweet switchbacks right out of the trailhead, and then some nice creeks, an old log cabin, and finally beautiful alpine meadows with views of the snow of N faces of Missouri and Belford. Fairly quick climb for us, and enjoyed a couple 14er ESB beers on the summit to commemorate my 1st and 2nd CO 14ers. Also some beer waiting for us in the creek at dusk upon our return to the trail head. Another great day w/stunningly beautiful & cooperative weather for October in Colorado.

via Missouri Gulch  Sucess!

Climbed with Rkymtn, second time up this one. Trail conditions were good, not too much snow. Good boots and gaitors are all that you need, but you may want yaktrax or something to deal with the hardpacked snow. It was a bit too cold and windy to desire to head over to Oxford, so we headed back.

via Missouri Gulch  Sucess!

Climbed with chicagotransplant. It was clear, but blustery. The desire to hit Oxford was there, but the timing and conditions weren't. I hope to get back for both Oxford and Missouri.

via Missouri Gulch  Sucess!

Summited this peak on the way out as an after-thought after taging Missouri, Iowa & Emerald. A long day. 12.5 hours RT.

Great colours  Sucess!

Climbed the standard route. Colours are pretty much at peak in Clear Creek/Missouri gulch. Nice climb, but the predictable crowd dissuaged us from following the pack over to Oxford. It'll probably be another two years before I contemplate another 14er.

Belford/Oxford  Sucess!

11 Hours for the Combo  Sucess!

Long but fun day. 11 hours for our Belford/Oxford combo.

With Oxford  Sucess!

Long ago.

Fat and Out of Shape  Sucess!

First hike in a while. Smoker's lung (stupid habit fostered by grief this summer) and lack of acclimatization led to a tougher effort than expected. Still, up and back in 7 hours, summiting by 10:30 a.m. Weather kept me from Oxford.
