Late day hike  Sucess!

Got out to Mt Princeton kind of late, had to go back to the little town store to grab some sunblock. Went up alone, ran back down when I saw on the summit that some dark clouds were coming in. Probably the fastest 5300ft I've ever lost while on foot! Started raining once I started up the car, talk about luck.

#25  Sucess!

We drove up to the radio towers and hiked from there. There were gliders all over the place and one flew so close that those of us on the summit could see the pilot sitting in the cockpit. Frightening but amazing. Great views.

Princeton  Sucess!

The first time I tried this mountain I followed a group of people up the wrong trail and ended up having a "learning experience." The second time I tried, found the right trail and succeeded!

via the Radio Towers  Sucess!

Not a bad hike. If you're going, might as well follow the dirt road to the end and summit Tigger Peak on the way.

Standard Route from Radio Towers  Sucess!

Least favorite 14er so far - carrying a camera was almost a waste, except to get shots of my fellow hikers. Trail (and road) to around 12,700' is good. Lots of talus and scree from that point to the summit. Threatened rain all day (7AM-2PM), but held off till we got in the car!

rocky top  Sucess!

least favorite part was all the rocks at the top- tricky when wet

I like it on top

Soutwest Ridge  Sucess!

Steep climb up through the canyon, but fun popping out at treeline. Friends first 14'er. Weather held off for us to summit.

Another great one  Sucess!

Third 14er, and again, climbed with my brother and his dog. Weather was absolutely perfect at the top.

via Mt. Princeton Road  Sucess!

Camped at about 11,000 at a perfect site, funny thing was all the guide books / online descriptions say the road is fairly rough especially above the radio towers. Well, around the corner after the radio towers we just so heppened to run into a brand spanking new mini-cooper from NewYork coming down the road! Either that car is bad ass or the road isn't as rough as it is made out to be. The climb was fairly easy except for a sore knee from Mt. Antero the day before. Number 21 on the way to 54.

From Radio Towers  Sucess!

Parked just above the Radio Towers. Good weather, I was moving slow as it was my first time above 12K in many months.

From 8900 feet!  Sucess!

Both of my dogs (such troopers!) and myself summitted! Over 5000 feet of elevation gain, and just under 7 miles to the summit. (It did take us 6 hours...)

Looking at Mt Princeton from US 285, it sure gives you a feeling of accomplishment!

A fine day  Sucess!

Started from the Radio towers. Hardly a cloud in the sky all day and very warm. Hung out at the summit for 1.5 hours. KirkT posted a TR on 14ers.com. The trail is mostly snow covered still. Would recommend an ice axe and safe travel techniques for avy terrain. Snow is melting FAST.

East Slopes  Sucess!

First one for my wife and it was perfect. Little snow close to summit but beautiful. Camped just past radio towers and hiked from there. Hiking during the week keeps the crowds away..
