Stewart Creek night hike  Sucess!

Arrived at the TH just after midnight, intending to sleep a bit, but decided simply to head out and summit as early as possible. The stream crossings were time-consuming, and we (trishapajean and I) summitted at 7:10 am under glorious clear skies. The view from the top is amazing. Saw only two other people all day.

saved San Luis for my final 14er with my wife and a great group of friends! Some early snow made for a beautiful, mellow hike. Great 14er to start or end on!

Stewart Creek  Sucess!

Climbed the standard route with some people from work (including a first timer!). Got rained on coming back down, and got to see a cattle drive on the road. Gotta love a 14er where the cows outnumber the people!

From Stewart Creek  Sucess!

The wilderness around this area is worth the long drive to get there. We started a bit late but still made the summit by around noon.

Drove into the trailhead the night before and slept it the back of my Pathfinder. A family came to summit while I was up, the father was finishing the 14’ers and save it for last so he could have his family with him. Took lots of photos for them, very cool.

Route Climbed: Stewert Creek Date Climbed: June 2004  Sucess!

The bugs were terrible. Unfortunately, I had to camp on a little spit of land near the beaver ponds. I burnt alot of greens to keep the smoke going. A hot day.

I saw my first moose the next day as I was hiking out.

Pointed a guy in the right direction as I was leaving the summit. I'll be back later this year to do Oregon peak.

Route Climbed: S Ridge Date Climbed: July 12, 2004  Sucess!

I've climbed several San Juan peaks, but only this one had a true wilderness feel. Seeing a group of bull elk on a ridge silhouetted against the sunrise was the highlight and one of those wild moments of incontestable purity.
