Throwback to #21 - #23 BelOxMO Loop

Via elk park pass. Long day totaled 19 miles and 8000 feet elevation gained, took 9 hours. First time doing a triple 14er summit day!


Lots of creeks to cross on log jams and rocks

First sight of Mt Belford. Turning left at the trail junction but doing Missouri Mountain as well so we will come back down the trail that goes off to the right at this junction completing a loop.

Almost to Mt Belford summt

From summit of Mt Oxford after crossing the traverse, now we must cross back but no need to re summit Mt Belford as we will cut left a little early and hike down towards Elk Park

From elk park pass looking at Missouri Mountain on the right, that's were we are headed. Emerald Mountain is the pyramid on the left. A trail exists the whole way.

Missouri Mountain from elk park pass. You can attempt to summit on this class 4 ridge in front of us but on this day I hiked off down to the right and caught the standard route up Missouri.
