First 14er  Sucess!

The air is THIN up there!! This is the highest I've ever been and my 11,000' pace is not the same as my 14,000' pace. Especially after you eat Frosted Mini Wheats for breakfast. And keeping up with the last 2 posts..... Ugh.

Sawtooth from Bierstadt  Sucess!

Some guy on the summit asked his friend if the register canister was a time capsule. Ugh. Trip report

From Guanella Pass  Sucess!

From Guanella Pass TH, I hiked up Gray Wolf Peak, then traversed over to Spalding, and then on to Evans. Lots of willows.

First taste of 14,000'  Sucess!

First day in Colorado headed up this guy...almost killed me for lack of oxygen, but it was great!

Sawtooth at Night!  Sucess!

Left Guanella Pass at 9:35 PM, got to the summit at 11:30 PM. The moon was so bright that we kept the headlamps in the packs. Tried to catch some Z's on the summit, but it was kinda chilly, so we continued to Evans via Sawtooth. Back at the TH at 6:35 am. Looong trip, especially with no sleep!

Better with family  Sucess!

Climbed it with my Pops. All the people up top and the road tend to ruin it a little for me otherwise.

nice climb  Sucess!

From Summit Lake via Mt.Spalding. Gorgeous cloudless sunny day. Two F-16 fighters flew by at eye level while we were sitting on the summit.

From Summit Lake with Mount Spalding  Sucess!

We enjoyed crisp, beautiful fall weather today. Best of all, the short route and later season (later/lesser storm threat) meant we didn't have to start hiking in the dark. Yeah! The south side of this route was more fun and scenic than anticipated. Partner: Husband.

Evans/Bierstadt   Sucess!

I climbed Evans via East Ridge route up to Bierstadt and the across the Sawtooth Ridge. Snow made the Sawtooth Ridge a little more challenging and potentially dangerous. But we took our time and made it across safely. There were very few people out there due to the snow storm. Fun day.

First Fourteener  Sucess!

Hiked Mt. Evans from Summit Lake Via Mt. Spalding. I was the only one hiking up on that route. There were 2 people hiking down from Evans as I started up the ridge from Spalding.

This was my 1st 14er I've hiked. (I don't count taking the train to the top of Pikes Peak, or driving up the road to Evans)

Evans at 3AM!?!?  Sucess!

Night hike, from Bierstadt via the Sawtooth. By the time we reached the West Ridge at around 2am, fatigue had set in, and the going was tough. The summit of Evans had a great view of Denver city lights. Started hallucinating things on the way down. Got back to Guanella Pass at about 6:30 am and slept for 4 hours in the car. Fun sufferfest!

Evans  Sucess!

From Echo Lake via Mt. Spaulding

From Guanella Pass via "High and Dry" route  Sucess!

Took the alternate route from Guanella Pass which avoids the willows/gully. A little longer route but less wet/strenuous, and very scenic. Saw three moose during the approach. Due to the road being closed for a bicycle race, the three of us were alone on the summit, even with a late 10:00 AM summit! Not bad for a Saturday in July.
