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).

For details on doing this hike I recommend using 14ers.com .     Mt. Bross closed, but that didn't stop hikers....

Hiking, Southeast, Trail Guides / 31.05.2016

This loop hike includes unmaintained trails with sections that are difficult to navigate. Leg coverings such as gaiters or long pants are recommended for protection from heavy undergrowth in some sections. The area is remote and not frequently hiked, therefore precautions should be taken to avoid rattlesnakes. Headphones should not be used while hiking in this area, since rattlesnakes are nearly always heard before being seen.
