Thank you so much for your kind words, and taking the time to write. My family and I are from Maryland. I believe we are planning to come back out to Colorado and to the base of El Diente sometime in December or the beginning of next summer. When I know for sure I will surely post it here. It means a lot that you would consider joining us. Thank you.

May God go with you on all your future travels.


David, If you come in December, a trip to the base of the mountain would be difficult at best, and possibly somewhat dangerous (avalanche potential/frostbite) with winter conditions. It may make more sense to hike into that area during the summer season. Feel free to send me a PM (personal message) if you would like to discuss.
Luke 1:30 The angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God. 31 "And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name Him Jesus.

34 Mary said to the angel, "How can this be, since I am a virgin ?"

37 "For nothing will be impossible with God."
