A few photos of a Gray's / Torrey's sunrise hike in late July 08, a few days after your hike:

We did Belford/Oxford "full moon" as a group back in '07 it was a great climb though as I recall, it was cloudy enough that the moon wasn't much help.

We attempted Belford/Oxford in a full moon in OCT 08 That happened to turn out to be the first big Blizzard of the year. We were eventually turned around at about 13,000' because the Dog was getting too much snow caked up in his pads. Thank God for Dog booties now. We were not able to see where we hiked 5 minutes prior and I think It dumped over a foot of snow in a couple of hours. It sure was an amazing experience though. I am up for a full moon/sunrise hike, but will not be able to on the June 6 one.

Okay...taking moon stalker's advice not to do San Luis, I propose Belford/Oxford for June 6.

Any takers?

Here's a Gray's summit photo, just before sunrise on last year's moonlight hike.

Please note that there are 14ers label easiest on the 14ers.com site. So if it is your first attempt - you might consider one of these. I am up to 24 14ers in three season and the easiest and quickest I have found is Mount Sherman nearby for me.

Bodhi88, thanks for the suggestion - I don't want to derail this thread but have been closely looking at my options to "get back in the saddle" again, there's no list "14ers for gimps"! :lol:

There is nothing better than being above the clouds on a summit over 14,000 feet high looking down. See you there sometime.

I am still interested in doing another moonlight hike and the next full moon is June 7th. Anyone interested in doing Missouri Mountain on Saturday, June 6th?
