Status Update
Used Nellie Creek TH for a non-14er hike, the water crossings and road proved too soggy and wet, parked 4WD truck prior to river crossings, could be due to the excessive rain day before; got pictures of the backside of Uncompahgre.

Squirrel, what did you hike? I've been thinking about Silver in the coming weeks, so I've wondered about the conditions on the N sides of Uncompahgre.

No designated hike/peak, primarily aimless wandering... botanical interests... elk curiosity... water flow.

Re N side of Uncompahgre and Silver: Iâd say accessible with stable, intermittent snow patches. Encountered such around 12.3k and able to walk across without traction at noontime. Unsure how to attach pics here, so Iâll PM pictures of Uncompahgre from a SE perspective on Wednesday last week, then another picture from hike on Sunday... sun is melting the snow quickly. Iâd say there were 5 big river crossings for my hike and had to wade across every one, be prepared for that and Iâd say youâre golden. N side probably has similar conditions.
