Summer time fun!

This is Dalton and daddy's new favorite pass time.........running thru the sprinklers!!
Wet from head to toe.

El Diente (14,159') and Mt Sneffels (14,150')

This past weekend, my buddy Alan B. and I decided to see if we could add a few more summits to our list of 14ers. When the weekend came to a close, El Diente and Mt Sneffles were checked off the list!!! This was the couloir we chose to climb to gain the ridge on El Diente.
As you can see, the slope was pretty steep (approx. 45-50 degrees) definitely requiring crampons and a mountaineering axe.

Here is our summit pic on Mt Sneffels.
This was the couloir we chose to down climb.
A well deserved rest after a great weekend with a great climbing partner!!!

Here are our trip reports my buddy Alan posted on

Camping @ Bassett Springs

This past week (or two) we have had our trailer and my mom and dad's trailer up on "the mountain" @ Bassett Springs. Kelli and my dad cooking breakfast.Playing a friendly game of Holey board.
Dalton and my dad riding the wheeler. (on the bumps)
I think everyone had a great time. Craig set up his huge tent, Cheyenne played with Dalton and Kelli's family came up for dinner, smores, and fun.
