after work drive from Telluride to S. Colony lakes TH. Arrived at midnight. hiked in to S. Colony lakes and established a nice camp at the middle lake. assessed weather and decided to go for Humboldt to preview Crestones for the day's attempts. Climbed the south slopes to the west ridge of Humboldt and it was a gorgeous day. Took lots of photos and had a nap on the summit. back down to camp by 2 pm, snacking, hydrating, napping and keeping away the aggressive squirrels occupied the afternoon. Sunset over the lakes with a bottle of whiskey and bed at dusk.
