 A snow-free day on Humboldt  

A couple weeks after Mt. Harvard, we were getting that “14er itch” again. However, there was no way we were venturing into that much snow again…and after Colorado’s epic, record setting winter, pretty much every mountain looked like Harvard.

After a bit of research though, we discovered that the southern portions of the state, especially the eastern mountains were almost completely dry. Problem with that is that most of the Sangre de Cristo range is Class 3 and above (Class 3 = climbing, but not so much that you need a rope essentially), except for Humble Humboldt. Nestled next to some of the most imposing mountains I have ever seen in the Crestones, was Mt. Humboldt at 14,064 feet...
