I always have fond memories of doing that traverse from Milwaukee to Pico to Unnamed 13,020. That ledge on Milwaukee certainly sets the tone for the day. But, we came up from Cottonwood Creek and descended down to same drainage from 13,020. The hike in from Sand Creek is equally enjoyable and we combined those two as you guys did. Thanks for posting. Happy trails! :-)

Well done. Tijeras remains one of my favorite 13ers. Thanks for sharing of your quality Sangre Adventure. Keep reaching all those peaks

Very Nice
