Location

Meet Friday at 7:30 am and carpool to the trailhead north of Buena Vista.  On Friday, we will backpack in 7 miles (1900 feet of elevation gain) and camp near Little Johns Cabin at 10,700 feet.  Early start on Saturday, with lighter packs we will hike up Emerald's east slopes to the summit (10 miles round trip and 3200 feet of elevation gain on Saturday).  Depending on weather and how the group is feeling, we might do a bonus and add on Iowa Peak (13,831), another Centennial, which is .8 mile north of Emerald.  Return to the same camp.  On Sunday pack out.  Emerald is south of the Fourteeners Oxford, Belford and Missouri without the crowds.
