Summit with my wife  Sucess!

This was my wife's second mountain ever, after topping out on Democrat a couple days earlier. We drove up the 2 miles to the real trailhead to avoid the extra hike.

East Slope via S. Elbert TH  Sucess!

I reached the summit with hiking pals, Phil Miller and Dan Spare in about three and a half hours. Beautiful weather encouraged the long walk to the top with at least 50 people at the summit. My 7th fourteener.

Great first 14'er  Sucess!

We had a phenominal day... zero clouds. Took the Southeast trail from the lower trailhead/parking lot. 7 hours total (including some time to hang at the summit). Lots of fun, great views.

Black Cloud Ascent  Sucess!

My last 14er of that summer before I had to move out of CO for a while. Friends and I did the Black Cloud trail which turned out to be the perfect choice. We were the only ones to climb that route that day. Quite a change of scenery to pop out on the summit to 100 people.
