Early big moun tains for me  Sucess!

Most of the Collegiates , Elbert and Massive too. These were the first big mountains I hiked outside of the Pike's Peak area, and still some memorable views and times.

did many hikes in the area - started with 14ers (now done), so moved onto 13ers... Still prefer my favorite - San Juans.

Lots of Options  Sucess!

Have spent many weekends here. Nice to backpack into and hike a few peaks. Elkhead Basin in the Fall is one of my favorites.

Meh...  Sucess!

Been up more mountains in the Sawatch than I care to admit. Big, bulky and easy range. Easy access too. Nothing particular amazing about the range but Ice Mountain (Three Apostles) is/are amazing. Holy Cross is sweet too.
Huge elevation gains for these peaks.

Amazing range  Sucess!

Did some exploring/climbing/scrambling up here and camped on a 5'x5' flat area on the side of a mountain. Made for an uncomfortable and mostly sleepless night but we had amazing views of an intense meteor shower that just happened to occur while we were there.
