Our first 14er! We vacation in Breckenridge every summer and have done most of the hikes in the area; finally ready to tackle Quandary. We did a couple of "warm-up" hikes earlier in the week. Set out on the trail around 10 AM Thursday since the forecast was sunny and warm all week. It was amazing; harder than I'd thought. Ran out of water (we brought up 6 liters but gave away a liter to a person we met who hadn't brought any) on the way down...We too ran into the yellow lab - he belongs to the owner of Breckenridge Photography who lives on Quandary. Apparently the dog is a regular on the mountain. Summited @ 1:30 - round trip took 6 1/2 hours. Check out the pics: http://share.shutterfly.com/action/share/view?i=EeCMXDJu2cM2J0&open=1&sm=1&sl=1. Absolutely amazing!!!
