Bel-Ox-Emarld-Iowa-MO  Sucess!

Over 8,000 vertical ft. and a lot of miles, but the scenery made it worthwhile.

Missouri Gulch TH with Oxford  Sucess!

Started on the Missouri Gulch TH at 6:15 and summited Belford at 9:05. Spent fifteen 15 minutes on top and then made the trek on over to Oxford. Had good weather (although it was really hot up there!) and decent views.

Belford  Sucess!

My story sounds pretty common - have done Belford twice, the second time for Oxford but had to turn around because of weather - some day I'll make it to Oxford!

Route Climbed: Missouri Gulch TH  Sucess!

This had been my first time climbing Mt. Belford -- an approachinig storm denied me and my team the neighboring peak, Mt. Oxford. Grrr!! I didn't know it then, but I would try many time thence to re-take it to get to Oxford and all were unsuccessful due to rain and snow. But I'll get there one day :D

During a rest stop in the descent, I accidentally stepped on my glasses. Totally unbelieveable!!

Back to Belford  Sucess!

Belford was my first(14ner) back in 1994. Did it again from Missouri Gulch hoping to have the weather for a chance at Oxford, but it was not to be. Met a big, fat marmot who was conditioned to the sound of snack wrappers. Opening a bag really got his attention.

Did the combo with Oxford- great weather. A nice hike but with a lot of steep switchbacks!

West Slopes  Sucess!

Belford and Oxford in the same day. Camped at the top of the switchbacks the night before and bagged both of them early the next day. Beautiful. Numbers 11 and 12.

Great day on Belford  Sucess!

Perfect day on Belford. Started a little after 5a (parking lot was already half full) was on the summit by 8a then headed over to Oxford. Clouds built rapidly on the way down and I was concerned for the late starters, but they caught a break when the clouds dissipated as quickly as they appeared.

First solo 14er...it was awesome!

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.

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.
