Nice winter 14er outing with a group of 8 on a calm, warm day. 11 hour day at a leisurely pace for Decalibron from the winter trailhead just below Paris Mill. These 14ers are now officially open to the public!
Hiked to the top of Cameron on the way from Lincoln to Democrat and while returning back to Bross.
I didn't realize that I'd passed over the summit until looking back from Lincoln. This area is much more beautiful with a coat of snow.
4 peaks in one day, great hike.
Windy, Cold, Cloudy, Sunny, Cloudy, Sunny, Cloudy. Great Day in the mountains.
Just to let you know
Gained Democrat's N. ridge from west side. Summited Democrat and then swung over to Cameron. Descended South side to Kite Lake and hitch hiked back to Freemont Pass.
Kilimanjaro training hike. We did Democrat first, then Cameron. It was windy and cold. Two fighter jets buzzed the area as we were nearing the summit. We decided not to go for Lincoln or Bross (there were some showers to the west), so we took a few pictures and headed back to Kite Lake.
A nice hike! Got my friend up his first 14er then talked him into Cameron too! He was a little resentful and tired, LOL.
Summited with Democrat, Lincoln and Bross from Kite Lake.
It's kinda a cool summit, a heavy frost made it look like the Moon. Saw the stuck truck and the tow guys trying to figure out how to get it out.
From Kite Lake campground.

Beat the huge crowds by leaving at 5 a.m. on the busy Labor day Sunday. Was funny watching from the top of Lincoln as the herd was heading up Democrat. Nice folks, great weather and some idiot has a nice Toyota Tundra buried to the axles on the side of Bross's hiking trail, ouch!
On the stroll to Lincoln. Some douche had left his truck stuck near the summit.

Struck by lightning on Bross.
Wife, dog and I. From Bross completed the loop to Cameron. Decided to bail as I needed to get home a replace the muffler that had parted company from our car and required us to park waaaayy down the road.
#2 of 4 for the Day. Nice hike.
I agree... It counts. Its still a mountain and a summit.
This one definitely felt like a separate 14er while hiking up from the Democrat saddle. Quite a workout! Definitely enjoyed Cameron even though it doesn't officially rank.
Cool summit even if it isn't a "legit" 14er. We did the Decalibron that day and then went on to do Quandary next. Great day
