 Belford 6/18   

We backpacked in to 11,500 late saturday and planned on doing missouri mtn from the missouri gulch trail on Sunday morning. The weather was so nice we decided to summit Belford that afternoon. There was no threat of T-storms and we were on the summit until about 5:30, with temps in the 60s at the top! Belford trail was clear except for a few patches of snow in the valley and a few patches near the top. Definitely a great hike this time of year. From the trail and the summit of Belford, we noticed that Missouri was still pretty snowcovered so we just hiked down Sunday. We took an incredible 360 degree panorama of photos that my friend stitched together. I will try to post it soon.
