Fall is in the air. Ted, on the route down the north side of Harvard. [Christy here again] After spending the last three weekends running through the incredible Maroon – Snowmass Wilderness, we thought we’d switch it up and explore a new area. Earlier this summer, we had done a fun loop run over Missouri and Belford Mountains. From the summit of Missouri, we had an amazing view of the...
We wanted to go climb a mountain this past weekend, and we were unsure of where to go. We were looking for something that was tall, nearby, and was a summit we hadn’t yet climbed. It was actually kind of hard to find a mountain that fit that description.
Holy Cross Ridge. It may not be the most creative name for one of Colorado’s Centennials, but as a ski objective the mountain is definitely inspiring.
Christy and I went to Twin Lakes to run Mount Elbert last weekend, a favorite outing of ours and a pretty novel running experience considering it’s the tallest mountain in the state.
We’re pretty sure everyone has gotten over hearing about skiing at this point, but the snow just continued to hang on in the Sawatch Range so I was able to check off a few more peaks this past weekend – Oklahoma, Casco, and French.
Next up on the ski list was Emerald Peak, 13,904 ft., another Colorado Centennial.
It was a great day skiing Ice Mountain and North Apostle.
Mount Oklahoma, a Centennial 13er just south of Mount Massive, is a great ski descent.
Casco and French, a cool combo of high 13ers with cool ski lines.
Devil’s Armchair on Mount Ouray– a worthy ski goal in the southern Sawatch Range.
