Nice early morning hike  Sucess!

Hiked with my father and brother in-law. Nice day out. Started at 6am. Made the summit at 7:50a.m.

Good views, and a clear morning. Clouds started to build up fairly early.

Sawtooth ridge  Sucess!

Climbed it from Summit lake, across Sawtooth ridge. Didn't see anyone else until we got to the summit, where there were about 20 people who were up there and had walked the standard route.

First Colorado 14er  Sucess!

Standard route up - amazed at how popular and busy the trail was. Fun hike. Arrived in Denver from Bay Area at 8 PM the night before, didn't impact me as much as I feared but did feel a lack of energy. Worked well for acclimatization for additional 14ers later in the week.

Beautiful, busy hike  Sucess!

My wife and I's first fourteener. Lots of people on the trail from Guanella Pass, but nothing could have been better than the beautiful, cloudless day we were able to enjoy.

We started around 6:45 (probably should have started earlier to avoid contributing to the large crowd). Made it to the summit and back in about 4.5 hours, including a decent hangout at the top to enjoy the view.

10/26/14 overnight  Sucess!

Parked at the TH on Saturday evening and hiked 1.5 miles up Bierstadt trail and pitched my tent. Summited Bierstadt the next morning at 8:35am the next morning before the crowd showed up. This was my first 14er and it was a very windy and cold summit.

Easy day  Sucess!

Two hours and forty five minutes up, one hour and forty five minutes down. I hope the trio of chilled girls from Kansas got off the top before the rain and sleet came in.

Guanella Pass TH  Sucess!

#1 8-11-14 Interesting early approach thru the "bogs." Chilly on top. We were not the only ones who decided to try this 14er on for size... #2 5-25-15 Mostly snowshoes all the way up and down. Beautiful summit conditions. Die Gesellschaft war absolut ausgezeichnet.

West Ridge  Sucess!

Took a newbie up her first 14er on Bierstadt. She had a great time. I got a laugh out of the 'conga-line' of what had to be ~400 people! But, it was a Sunday, so expected.
Freaking cold atop!!
