This finishes my Sawatch 14ers. Beautiful Day.
Lots of walking.
on the b-day weekend, worked well!
Unrelenting high winds all day made this hike more challenging than normal. Great day for pics if I could hold on to my camera!#15.
Cloudless day, lounged around on the summit for a while, no reason to finish quickly. Easy peak, but the return over Belford gets the lungs going.
Solo. 5 hours 45 mins with an extra half mile + added. Nice run back to camp from the summit of Belford.
Did the standard Belford/Oxford combination in September 1997.
This hike got me to my 2007 goal.
Another one down.
I hiked Mt. Oxford via Mt. Belford from the Missouri Gulch trail, veruy nice hike in spring.
Completed this after climbing Missouri. The Missouri/Oxford/Belford loop was very difficult and a long day. 14+ miles and over 7,000 ft. elevation gain. Need to have a full day of good weather to safely complete this trip.
Climbed Belford and Oxford from Missouri Gulch TH. Easy hiking, good trail, nice views.
We really enjoyed this summit, kicking back and eating lunch while talking to other hikers and snapping photos. An early start this day allowed us ample time to relax and take in the Sawatch views. I confess I did NOT so much enjoy the re-ascent of Belford, but it was tolerable. Partner: Deb.
Wife, dog and I climbed the duo from Missouri Gulch. Great day except for the pricks that had the dog off leash that started a fight with my dog, but oh well, what do you expect!? Rained on us on the way out...
Had three days off from work at Philmont so we went up to Colorado for some 14ers. We did Belford and Oxford together. We started at 11am and finished at 5:30pm. Great day with amazing weather conditions...a little windy but not bad
early ascent in the morning from a camp on top of Mt. Belford.
climbed after Belford
Done with Belford. Easy hike. Duchess (my dog very happy).
