You should look into the hourglass ridge on Mount Alice in Wild Basin if you want a 13er in the park. It doesn't have the bang for buck that Mummy Mania has but it also doesn't have the potential parking lot CF that is the Longs Peak TH. Wild Basin is a special place. Great views back there, especially of McHenry's Notch. Don't worry about the miles. The trails are solid in Wild Basin and the miles go quick.

I like this. If another year goes by without the Swedish Bikini Team, I'll be spending all my money on booze anyway.
I predict a lot of booze in your future.

Ahh, disrespect of the Sawatch Range. Funny, how on so many of these threads, it's not a question of if, but when. The most sure-fire sign that a thread has run its course, and nobody has anything of value to add anymore.

My main goal is to meet new people and climb with them. I also want to complete the Tenmile 13ers, and get a handfull of the Mosquito 13ers this summer, and get my blind puppy up a 14er or 13er this year.
Looks like you are exactly where I was last year (if your peak list is up to date). 23 14ers but no Elks or Sangres. I ended up hitting 4 peaks in the Sangres last year and Castle/Conundrum. The Sangres are amazing, you will enjoy that range!

This year it would be nice to summit Antero or take my son up Mount Elbert. We happen to love the Sawatch range. The towns nearby are relaxing and unpretentious. There's plenty of camping and trout fishing - I love it!
I would also like to see the Uinta Mountains.
