 The Dacali Bross  

Started out or hike on 09/5/10 from Breckenridge at 5:15 am. I drove my 2010 Toyota Prius up the Kite Lake TH. We basically made it all the way up to the TH and parked a few hundred feet away from the paid parking area. I think I bottomed out once or twice, but I took my time and made it up without a problem

We were officially on the TH a few minutes past 6am but we were doing great on time. My wife Sarah, buddy Lu, and I were hoping to bag three peaks today…we decided to leave Bross alone because we requested us not to…

It was a beautiful day on the mountain but a little windy…

Democrat Summit: 9:00 a:m
Cameron Summit: 10:15am
Lincoln Summit: 10:30am
Completed the hike: 12:15pm

My wife Sarah chose not to bag Cameron and Lincoln with Lu and I. She found a group and made her way down. It was a busy mountain with hundreds of people on it…though I felt awful, I knew she was going to be fine. Especially with the two hikers she was with…thank you whoever you are.

When Lu and I got to the top of Cameron, we experienced 65 mph gusts…it was blowing us over. Strong winds!!!!

***I was surprised to see so many hikers disregard the private property warnings for Bross…there were so many people hiking the ridge over to Bross…*****

I believe it is not illegal to hike the ridge over to bross and then come down the marked trail on Bross, gaining the summit is what is ”illegal”.
