 Sunny Sunset on Huron   

I had been trying to get a 14er in during XC season for a while but Saturday meets and exhausted Sunday mornings kept getting in the way. Finally, I decided a Saturday afternoon/sunset 14er after a meet was the way to solve this problem. With that in mind, we set out for Huron Peak around 1 PM on Saturday, October 6th.

We arrived after an adventurous 4WD trip. After turning left in Winfield, the road got a bit rougher and then around .2 miles, the road got narrower. We thought this was the point where the road got “rugged and narrow” according to It did. But then when we got to .4 miles…it really got “rugged and narrow,” especially for my Ford Escape.
