Fast Ascent  Sucess!

Started at 5:00 am and was on the summit by 8:15. Not too bad for two flatlanders. Did the ridge to Sunshine and descended the northwest slope. Nice 10-mile day.

Redcloud-Sunsine Duo  Sucess!

Enjoyed perfect weather on the ascent to Redcloud...the summit had a cool look due to all the surrounding red dirt and rocks. This one was my 19th 14er...

Silver Creek TH  Sucess!

I went up the standard route, then over to Sunshine peak, all in all it was a pretty good day. The ridge was a little longer than I had thought, looking at it from Redcloud makes Sunshine seem so close.

Silver Creek TH  Sucess!

Standard loop with Sunshine. Perfect weather. Not the most exciting route but good views on top.

1st Colo 14er  Sucess!

This was my 1st Colorado 14er. Hiked it feeling pretty miserable with a fever. Wasn't able to continue on to Sunshine because of being sick and threatening weather. Beautiful hike in. Gorgeous views from the top! Thanks, Paul. : )

A little martian on top...  Sucess!

My first San Juan peak - a great hike! Noticed in looking at my photos afterwards that the summit looked a little like those photos from Mars, what with the rocks being so red and all!

Silver Creek  Sucess!

We got an early start at 4:15 and summited just after sunrise, then on to Sunshine. This was my first time climbing in the San Juans and I loved it.

Climbed twice in the late '90's early '00's; once in a summer snow fall (kinda nice), once linked with Sunshine.

Redcloud-Sunshine Ski Traverse  Sucess!

Hiked, then skinned, then bootpacked, then skinned again to the summit in just over 4 hours. Skied the S ridge to the Redcloud-Sunshine saddle, ending with an icy double fall line slope with severe exposure. A fun piece of skiing on the way to the main objective: Sunshine's N face.
