At the pass, the hikers coming down tell me its really cold and windy up there. “It might be too late to summit.”
|Hold onto your hat!|
|View from Manns Peak (12,273 feet)|
|It looks like a simple enough traverse from this perspective. At home with no wind.|
Or maybe it doesn't mean anything. Maybe this just is what it is.
|This is a Graylocks four-nerve daisy (Tetraneuris grandiflora). I have the perfect timing to see them.|
I head over to a favorite spot to watch sunset. The clouds are a bit thick so the colors are more muted. But it works.
|Hammock tucked out of the wind.|
|The elk are so hard to see up here. I walk quietly in the early hours. And get just a glimpse.|
|Up in the talus, I sit and watch clouds and listen to the elk making quiet calls. Maybe its still too early to hear them bugling.|
|Not too late to visit a little patch of these arnica.|
|I like this rock.|
