Colorado, Hiking, Western US / 26.07.2016

Tuesday, July 26, 2016 The Decalibron is Mt. Democrat (14,148 ft), Mt. Cameron (14,238 ft), Mt. Lincoln (14,286 ft), and Mt Bross (14,172 ft). These four 14'ers in the Mosquito range can be climbed in a single day. I started at the Kite Lake trailhead. The road to the trailhead is bad in 2 spots, one about a mile from the parking lot and another about a quarter mile from the parking lot. For details on doing this hike I recommend using 14ers.com .     Mt. Bross closed, but that didn't stop hikers....

July 23 - 24, 2016 Mt. Holy Cross is one of 55 mountains over 14,000 feet elevation in Colorado. At 14,005 feet it ranks 53rd. To plan your trip I recommend using www.14ers.com . That site can provide better info than l can. I do recommend camping for most people because this would be a tough out and back in a day. I saw several single day hikers not yet finished at 6 pm and 7 pm and they had been hiking more or less constantly from 6 am.  They...

Colorado, Hiking, Western US / 10.07.2014

On July 10th I tackled two 14'ers at the same time. Grays and Torreys peak can be easily picked out from the Frisco area where I was staying. From Frisco, look east toward Keystone and pick out a rounded peak on the right with a pointed peak just to the left. It is a fairly easy hike down the saddle of Grays Peak and back up Torreys Peak as long as you have the energy and stamina to reach the top of Grays Peak. Getting there: Getting there is a little...

Colorado, Western US / 09.07.2014

On July 9th at about 7 AM, Sandra dropped me off at Wheeler Flats near Copper Mountain. I hiked about 12 miles from Copper Mountain to Frisco on the Gore Range and North Ten Mile trails. I started at an elevation around 9700 feet and reached an elevation just under 12,000 feet somewhere above Uneva pass. I didn't see any other hikers on Gore Range trail; however, I ran into several campers (out and back hike) just short of Uneva Pass. There were a number of hikers on North...
