Photos: Hiking Huron by Kim Fenske

Special to the Daily/Kim FenskeCabin at the base of Huron Peak with Granite Peak in the background

Kim Fenske of Copper Mountain likes to climb big mountains in all seasons. Here are some photos and a brief account of a climb he undertook Thursday morning:

I have been trying to gain the summit of Huron for the past few weeks. A couple of weeks ago, I hiked 12 miles round-trip from Vicksburg through Winfield to the trailhead. Parked below due to deep snow on the Forest Service Road.

Today, I was stuck and spinning on ice, slightly high-centered, one car length below Winfield. After a half-hour struggle, got a push from a Jeep.

Parked at a safe distance and hiked 6 miles round-trip through deep snow up Mount Huron to 11,500 feet.
