Snowshoeing near Byers Peak, Colorado
I ended up taking the wrong trail and the view below is actually a view of Byers Peak from the saddle along the Bottle Peak trail.

Corona Arch is right outside Moab, Utah but it is NOT located in Arches National Park.
A bit too crowded for my taste and way too windy on that day to bother with my nicer camera.

Short road trip to Capitol Reef, Utah with the Jeep and my brand new tires 🙂
Drove along the Cathedral Valley Road up to the Temple of the Moon and Temple of the Sun. Then I retraced a few miles and cross over to the Hartnet Rd (a bit rough but lots of fun) to check out both Lower & Upper Cathedral Valley overlook. Finally I exited the area via the north back to I70…

Went back to the Chihuahua Trail. No moose this time but much better weather. Went all the way to the Chihuahua Lake. Really nice place and not a soul around…
This group of +14000ft mountains required a little bit more work than usual. After driving for seven hours we took the train (narrow gauge) for a little while until a drop off at Needleton. Then we hiked…
These mountains (mostly Sunlight & Windom) are more technical and have more exposure than your regular 14er but are so much fun 🙂
- Climbed North Eolus and Mt Eolus on Saturday 26th
- Climbed Sumlight Peak and Windom Mnt on Sunday 27th before hiking the 13 miles back to the Purgatory trailhead. We failed 1.5 miles before the TH and setup camp for one more night in the wild…
There was a fox near North Eolus playing / fighting with a marmot. The marmot ended up scaring the hell out of that fox 🙂
I also have quite a few shots of a mountain goat at the very summit of Mount Eolus.
Overall a great & long weekend of backpacking / climbing to bring my total number of 14ers to 54. Four to go…
Since I was in the neighborhood after climbing El Diente Peak and Mt Wilson I thought I’d try Mt Sneffels…
August has been crazy busy. Trying to finish all the Colorado 14ers I have left.
So far this summer; Wilson Peak, North Maroon Bell, El Diente Peak, Wilson Mountain, Mt Sneffels, N Eolus, Eolus Mountain, Sunlight Peak and Windom Mountain.
I’ve climbed / hiked 54 Colorado 14ers out of 58. Getting there…
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.
