 Huron Peak - Winfield Std Route - 8/17   

Drove from Wichita with great plans to get to Winfield before dark. After a several hour delay watching the sunset on I-70 west of Denver due to a rock slide?! We arrived at camp at 1am. So after a short nights sleep, big breakfast…. at 10am we embarked on a hike, "Just to check out the trailhead" for the next day attempt at the summit. Once there, we decided to try for the summit. We reached the summit at approx 2:30pm and back to camp by 6:00pm. Great trip other than those pesky afternoon storms that about got us(no such luck the next day on Belford), Nothing like an 11 mile hike on little sleep, and altitude acclimation. Makes for a long day…. Sure regretted not driving to the TH, would've saved us 4 mi.
