Square Top Mountain in Pictures

What few people will see





Early Morning Mountain Energy better than any energy drink

The hike to Square Top Mountain

On the way to the top

We crossed 6 rivers/streams, traversed snow, plowed through SHRUBBERY & negotiated rocky terrain
False Summit, still over 1 mile to go. It's steeper than it looks.
Always last





Summit of Square Top Mountain, 13,818 ft, view west
Mt Bierstadt & Mt Evans (14'ers) from Square Top, view North

Packs taking a much needed rest

Doesn't it look it you could just reach up and grab it?

The ONE, the ONLY Tea, self portrait circa 2011

Hiking the Ridge, this goes on for almost 150m
Square Top Summit

Just sitting here, inhaling the mountain energy transmitted through your photos (and words). So, so happy for both of you, Tea. Climbing and hiking in the such good company is as rare a treasure as can be found.

Beautiful shots. Just. Beautiful.
