Climbed San Luis Peak, my first Colorado 14,000 foot peak! Of course it started snowing and hailing when I started the climb. Fantastic views during the windows of sun and an exciting climb. As I started to descend the other side the wind and hail kicked up and made it hard to see. Then I heard thunder and hurried down. I don't understand how, I was sure I crossed the summit and was climbing down the opposite side of the mountain, but somehow I ended up back on the side I started at. Thinking I was on the opposite side I had trouble matching the map to the terrain. Of course when I tried my GPS the battery went dead. To make a long story shorter- I got disoriented thinking I was at a different spot and started hiking south on the CDT. Probably added an extra 5-6 miles up and back instead of over the top and down the purple route but it was still a fantastic summit and hiking day. The afternoon followed a river down the valley with terraces of beaver dams and finally mostly dry trail. Started to see moose too!
