What beautiful photos ... it certainly does look like this group defies the boring Sawatch theory! Thanks for posting ... always value information on those 13‘ers I have yet to do. Happy trails!

Looks like it was a fun day, too bad our schedules didn‘t align, but it seems like neither of us had a disappointing day! Thanks for posting, I will have to give this loop a try sometime.

Very cool Kevin.


The Sawatch Range Just Redeemed Itself     09/24/2008 01:55 your report! Sure looks like you all had a great time - and four 13ers and a high 12er in one shot? Can‘t beat that.

Yes, there are plenty of hidden gems in the Sawatch. You just have to look! Too bad the hoards are climbing the talus heaps above that magic 14K mark, leaving the coolest climbs in the range for the 13er list fanatics!
