A post from our recent trip to the Weminuche, to climb White Dome, Peak One, and Hunchback Mountain.
Exploring the valleys and summits of the Sangre de Cristos, this time up to Macey Lakes and Colony Baldy.
We recently made a trip to Fish and Owl Canyons down in Cedar Mesa. It's a region of Southeastern Utah that’s home to canyons, mountains, forested mesas, impressive sandstone formations and considerable Native American history. (more…)

We’ve always insisted that some of the easiest peaks can present the biggest challenges. We had twice failed to reach the grassy summit of Electric Peak, 13,598 ft. in the Northern Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
We made a trip up to a favorite remote spot for the weekend, to Pierre Lakes high above Snowmass Creek.

The following morning, with lighter packs, we continued down Buckskin Gulch to the Paria River. It was about six miles downstream to the confluence. After a quick dunk in the river and a little playing around with quicksand, we were on our way back up the canyon. We stopped at the midway exit to grab our overnight stuff and then retraced our path to Wire Pass. (more…)
