North Maroon Peak

Hiked / climbed North Maroon Peak last Sunday. A bit foggy but great climb.

Photo selection with comments. My shoes are awful for technical climbing I must say so I need to fix that problem before the next one.

Wilson Peak Climb

Climb of Wilson Peak from Navajo Basin Trailhead.

16 miles total and 5,000 feet elevation gain.
Here’s a visit of our beautiful Colorado. It‘s been an exceptional year in terms of snow pack and summer hiking still feels like Springs. The West Dolores river up to Navajo Lake is roaring. The weather was not particularly friendly but I managed to climb one 14000+ feet peak out of three. I guess I’ll have to come back…

Grays & Torreys Peak – Fall 2016

14,270 feet – 8.50 miles round trip. A fairly familiar hike for the morning. I’ve hiked these seven times I think but I just can’t get tired of the view from up there.
Part of the sky was overcast and the contrast was just fantastic.
The Altra Lone Peak 3.0 Mid did very well. I’m retiring the Lowa Renegade GTX for the snow season.

Huron Peak, CO

Swiss Fondue & French Wine at +14000ft? Check! Great hike of Huron Peak on August 13th with Echostar for our yearly fondue…

Was at the summit in 2 hour 5 minutes. Doing pretty well these days…

Grays Peak, Colorado

Quick hike atop Grays Peak on August 6th 2016. Not the greatest weather but good workout 🙂
