When I'm looking for great hikes I sometimes search online for photos of different areas. This website exists to return the favor.
Hillhaus.com has been hosted on Dreamhost since 1998. It operates on a modified PHP/MySQL blog script developed by B2Evolution. I'm constantly developing the interface and design.
As of 1/1/2008: 616,475 large images have been viewed.
I've finally installed a shopping cart and setup an account with Google checkouts, but until I get everything running smoothly please use the "contact" button at the top of the page to email me regarding any photo requests.
Environmental, public and non-profit organizations have permission to use my images without charge as long as they notify me first.
Add yourself to my announcement list and get periodic updates when I add new photos.
This 13-14 mile trail starts in Telluride and ascends into the Sneffels Wilderness, carving its way along Pack Basin in the rugged San Juan mountains. We followed these instructions but traversed the loop clockwise. The trail is one of the most beautiful and strenuous I've ever hiked. The trail tops out at 12,200 feet — roughly 3,500 feet higher than Telluride.
