Chicago Trail head  Sucess!

Did the Chicago trail head route. Very pretty coming up from the back side, and nice in the fact that once we got past the obnoxiously placed reservoir there were few people there. Also some fun scrambling to gain the upper lake, with boot deep snow.

Evans via Bierstadt and the Sawtooth Ridge  Sucess!

Started at Guanella Pass, waded though the famous Scott Gomer willows before the boardwalk was put in, summited Bierstadt and then did the Sawtooth to get to Evans. Headed back to the trailhead without going back over the Sawtooth. Got to the car just as the skies let loose with buckets of rain.

Long Day  Sucess!

Started at summit lake parking lot, went up Evans, across the sawtooth, up Bierstadt, back across the sawtooth and finally up Spalding to get get back to the parking lot.
The top of Evans was nice but windy. We got to the summit by 7:30am so we had the summit all to ourselves until we left about 30 minutes later.

Sawtooth  Sucess!

Fun climb via the Sawtooth. For the most part at least--with all the snow on Evans West Ridge, routefinding was difficult when I couldn't see the cairns. My profile pic at the time of this posting is me eating a PBJ somewhere before reaching that ridge.

Bad Times via Guanella Pass  Sucess!

Took 2 of my kids and 2 of my friends' kids (16, 14, 13, and 11) up Mt Evans through Guanella Pass on a morning after a long hard rain (and snow higher up). The willows were HORRIBLE and the trail was sooooo BOGGY and MUDDY until we got around the hill, and even then we had to worry about the occasional bog in the middle of a dry path.

Anyway, it was a great day because the kids made a great team. The wind was horrible at higher altitudes, but most of the kids were well dressed (albeit a little wet after the bogs). The 14 year old twisted her ankle during the way up, so it made for a VEEEEERRRY long day. We started at 7AM but didn't make the truck until 8:15PM amidst flashlights and trailfinding.

For 2 of the kids, it was their 1st 14er (heck of a 1st one, huh?), for another kid it was his 2nd, another one her 4th, and this was my 14th. Gonna try to hit a few more before the snow sets in.

Truly, I'd volunteer to be part of a team that created a TRUE path through the bogs. Anyone up for it? Let me know!

#10  Sucess!

We climbed from Summit Lake, all the way around the ridge to the summit. Met a few people on the way, but mostly sparse. Got sick on the summit, but made it down. I plan to go back and climb it from the Guanella Pass Trailhead.

B-Day Hike  Sucess!

Over from Bierstadt via the really fun Sawtooth Ridge. Did not arrive til the afternoon, and the post labor-day road closure made for far fewer people on top, only about 6 or 7 while I was up there. Was lucky to not get rained on during the trip back to Guanella Pass. A great birthday hike!

via Sawtooth  Sucess!

Started on Evans road at the Epaulet saddle and descended the gully to the Lake Fork valley. Ascended Bierstadt from just above Abyss Lake. Took the Sawtooth over to Evans and back down the road to the car.

Beautiful day, Ugly Summit  Sucess!

Completed the well marked Mt. Evans Loop. So we hit Mt. Spaulding AND Evans! This was 14er #10 fr me. WOO HOO! The West Ridge of Evans is full of fun climbing! But alas, the summit was SO packed! I have never been on a summit with so many people! Nor have I ever smelled exhaust at 14,000 feet...
