long day  Sucess!

The trail was only one day off from being closed for two months for calving season so I was glad to get it in while I could. The snow drifts above 10800 feet forced me to bushwhack the final mile or so via the southwest side. Five hours and twenty minutes up, slightly less than four hours down. I ate well at Madams in Eagle Nest that night.

Memorable peak, long ago  Sucess!

Estimated date. Climbed as part of a Boy Scout trip, and hit the summit on a Sunday morning. Gorgeous place to eat breakfast, just watch out for the mini-bears.

Busy, Busy, Busy  Sucess!

Climbed this peak with Comanche. Great summit. It was very busy at the time. It was cool seeing all the bandannas on the top. Only good type of trace to leave. The view at the top is great and it is cool seeing Baldy and Costilla way in the distance. Mountains we were on the top of a couple of weeks ago. We descended the brutal trail on the way to Clear Creek. Always fun seeing crews climbing up steep portions of trails while you are going down.:)

Epic Lightening  Sucess!

An epic storm rolled in from the southwest just as we summited, one of the best lightening shows I've seen. We set up camp just as the hail came, and when the storm was over the ground was covered in quarter-sized hail.

Route Climbed: ??? Date Climbed: July, 1984  Sucess!

I remembered beinig really psyched to be on top of this peak. I'm not sure what route I took to get there, but I was on a 5 day trek called "Mountain Men" that included kids from different troops around the country. This was my first real introduction to backpacking (a little more out there than what we did back in Ohio) and I loved it. The great view from the top inspired me and the rest, as they say, is history.
