For really up-to-date conditions on Colorado 14ers, you can't beat Hoffmeyer's site, Fourteener World.

Look at trip reports on Belford, Oxford, and La Plata at:

Check out his mountain photography, too, at http://www.hoffmeyer.com/

steve --

leave your snowshoes at home. there are scattered patches everywhere, but they are easily circumvented.

Get an early start the afternoon thunderstorm cycle has really been lighting it up around here the last few days. :shock: A little fresh snow on Mt Ouray this PM.

Just did Belford and Oxford on Sunday. The trail is all clear except maybe 10 foot patches of snow occasionally near the top. If you are hoping for snow, we intentionally climbed a nice snow couloir on Belford that should still be in.
