#6  Sucess!

Atleast all the dirt roads were fairly smooth. Worth seeing a part of the country that I wouldn't have seen otherwise.

Nice drive  Sucess!

We parked at the cattle guard so we would at least have a nice walk to stretch our legs. This “summit” fits in the category of a drive across country we otherwise wouldn’t have seen.

HP #19  Sucess!

After climbing Elbert in CO the day before, I was ready for an easy one! Thanks to the property owners for their hospitality! If you take your time and look around, there really is a lot to see! (just watch where you step)

Mount?  Sucess!

Buffalo, cattle and antelope. What it lacks in height, it makes up for in creativity at the summit.

Family High Point  Sucess!

This was our family's third high point. We took a detour during our trip to Utah to visit Mount Sunflower. It was a great break for the kids to stretch their legs after nine hours on the road. Every place has it's unique beauty, and Mt. Sunflower was very enjoyable.

HP #14  Sucess!

It was a close one. We managed to just survive getting mauled to death by man eatting mad cows. i shall never forget the look in there eyes. That was only the beginning. After we a few pitches up the deadly north face a freak midwest electric ice storm blew in. we had to bivy for like 3 and a half mins before pushing onto the summit. the winds were at a roaring 5 miles an hour. we were almost blown off except hotoven was able to build an anchor on the the metal sunflower sculpture. once on top there was a rogue cow looking for trouble and flying bugs that tried to drain us of our blood and our lives. oh mt. sunflower, i shall never forget thee. some of the most scenic views our eyes have ever gazed upon.
