Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Go Big or Go Home! Jack and I headed out for our first summits of the season and went after 2- 14ers in CO. there are 4 in that range but i had done the other 2 at different times.
we covered 7.1 miles, with 2,756ft of elevation gain and it took us 5hrs 50min with some breaks at both summits, Mt. Cameron and Bross.
Sierra stayed home due to the length and rock.
it was so great to get back up there!
ok, best part, pictures Smile


we had to park .8 miles from the trail head due to snow on the road, we got going at 6am, we had a 2hr drive from Denver! the lump on the right is Cameron


we had 2 large frozen snow fields to cross on the way up, glad i had my spikes, the 2 guys at the bottom did not make it up.


at the saddle headed up Cameron


Cameron summit


flat summit


summit


fastest way down Cameron!


snow was soft now, heading to Bross


marmot teasing Jack


snow break


Bross summit


broke the law....


this is where it got tricky and Jack was not happy about finding a way down


we had to cross 2 snow fields and very loose rock (scree) to get over to that trail on the other side. not fun poor guy got his feet cut up to Sad


looking over the ridge we came down then had to slide down to get to the other trail.


afternoon clouds


found some flowers towards the end, think we will have a late flower season this year.

Well that's it, Jack was toast and i felt great. Sierra really missed us all day, hope to get her out on the next one.

Till our next adventure....

"Snow break" is awesome, that is a beautiful pic of Jack. I like the "afternoon clouds" pic a lot, too. It's so weird for me to be looking at snow at this time of the year, lol. Looks like a really fun adventure for you guys. Bummer Sierra couldn't go, but, she will be all rested up for the next hike! Smile

I really like picture three- Jack of the Mountains.
Hate scree- only thing worse is downhill on rolling fist sized rocks.

I think vacation next year is going to be Colorado so I am taking note of all your great hikes. Hoping to see some of those beautiful places for myself.
