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 🙂

Castle Peak – Conundrum Peak

July 31st 2016
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.

Mt. Lindsey, July 2016

Mt. Lindsey – 14042ft – Northwest Ridge Trail
Camped on the trail (literaly) after a 2.5 hour bike ride to the trailhead plus about an hour hike. Woke up at 5am and reached the summit at 9:30am.

Mt Lindsey, June 2016

No summit.

Hike near Mt Lindsey. The access road being closed I had to bike to the trail-head for three hours before I could even start hiking. Made it to about 12000ft before I had to turn around.

Basically a good eight hour workout in the mountains 🙂

Mt Elbert – Nov 2015

11.3 miles – 11:45 total time – 5732ft ascent
Not the best weather. Coldest / strongest wind ever. After a few hours my water bottles were frozen…inside my backpack. Still better than staying around Denver for Black Friday…

Mt Democrat – Fall 2015

“Guess I just never thought of myself as an angry man.” – Raylan Givens
I thought I would go ahead with my plans of hiking Mt Democrat, Mt Cameron, Mt Lincoln and Mt Bross in spite of the recent events in Paris. In vain really. My anger is not going anywhere but so far I’ve refrained from any public statement so at least there’s that.

Grays and Torreys – Fall 2015

November 7, 2015
Snow hike of Grays and Torreys Peak on a perfect day. A little bit under eight hours.
The Kahtoola microspikes were really useful. Carried snowshoes but didn’t use them.
