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…

A classic; Grays & Torreys Peak. Still plenty of snow up there. Crampons & Ice axe a must. A happy place for Mountain Goats
After my failed attempt at Huron Peak (night hike) the day before it felt good to quickly hike up & down Mt Bierstadt with friends
Instant (well, a few hours) gratification 🙂
Chief Mountain on Saturday, Mt Evans Rd on Sunday. Hiked from Echo Lake to Summit Lake (one mile short)
“View” of Mt Evans from Chief Mountain…

Hiked (snowshoeing mostly) up to tree line along the black cloud trail. Was running late so had to turn around. Good workout though.
Hiked to the top of Mt Democrat. I was planning to do Lincoln / Cameron / Bross as well but the cold wind was just too much. Good hike though.
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.
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…
Quick hike atop Grays Peak on August 6th 2016. Not the greatest weather but good workout 🙂

Nice climb of Castle Peak and Conundrum Peak. Went down Conundrum Peak on snow sliding towards the frozen lake; much faster than going back around. The Jeep did well on Pearl Pass.
