At the Fish Hatchery discussing logistics
Tom ready to give Nolan's 14 a try.
Our wounderful crew, Matt, Patty, and Jason. Although Jason would rather have been running but an injury prevented this.
The three crazy fools who attemped this, John, Tom, and myself.

Start of the descent off Elbert. Next up is La Plata Peak. It is the mountain with the snow patch on it.
Dropping down into Echo canyon.
Remains from an old mine with La Plata in the background.
Tracks to no where.
More old mine stuff. I think that this may be what is left of Last Chance Mine?
Now onto La Plata. This is the start of the climb up La Plata.
Lots O steps.
There is a good trail all the way up La Plata.
Last picture of the night. We would go on to climb La Plata and Mount Huron but stopped there at around 6:45 am. Finished 4 of the 14 14ers, but I will be back to try it again.
