Carried 3 y.o. Journey up for her 3rd 14er  Sucess!

Consistently steep pretty much the whole way. Carrying my 31 pound 3 year old definitely gave me a workout. We made it down in about an hour though. Great day, good weather. Some wind on the ridge but not bad on top. 14er #3 for my 3 year old, and our 3rd in CO since moving here.

Get there early and go on a weekday if you can  Sucess!

This is a very popular 14er and you should be prepared for a circus at the summit and quite a line to get up. We arrived at the trailhead at 5:45 Sunday morning. The main lot was full by 6 when we started hiking. Do this hike on a weekday if you can. We summited in just over 2 hours as 2 hikers in good shape. Truly spectacular views but we would probably not do this one again on a weekend.

Fourteener #2  Sucess!

Left Boulder around five am and made it to the trailhead just after seven. Crisp cool morning. There was not a cloud in the sky and the views from atop Quandary of the Sawatch and Elk Ranges to the west, the Mosquito Range to the south, the Front Range to the East, and the Tenmile Range to the north were all fantastic. Excited for my next fourteener!

Nice 14er with bonus mountain goats  Sucess!

Started early enough to beat the weather, saw a family of mountain goats near the trail on the way down. Sweet!

Quandary   Sucess!

Up the Cristo Couloir and out the East Ridge. Fairly straightforward. Didn’t even really need crampons but they did make it easier.

First 14er!  Sucess!

Stayed in a house right at the trailhead for a week before climbing and watched the people go up the summit ridge every morning!

#3  Sucess!

The Cristo Couloir provided one of the best sledding descents of the summer!

Via Cristo Couloir  Sucess!

Started around 5AM. Took 2WD car about half way to the dam. 4WD certainly could have made it almost all the way to the dam. Couloir was kinda dry, but certainly climbable (no skiing for sure). Most of the snow was powder and did not require crampons 90% of the time. Near perfect day otherwise. Descended down east ridge back to car. Traction recommended on ridge. Back at car around 11:30AM.

First Colorado 14er  Sucess!

My final hike during my week in CO, and my first CO 14er. Lots of people, but everyone was friendly. Saw a couple mountain goats and lots of pika. Had nice weather, breezy and cool at the summit. Took just over three hours to summit. Hopefully I can come back to Colorado soon!
