Quick Summary

This day was originally set for Mission Peak but with a weather front coming in we decided to do Horse Lake Peak instead. At 7 miles and 2000 feet of elevation gain this was a lighter hike but as you can see this mountain was a very worthwhile visit. We are both glad we did because Mission Peak was quiet stormy that day while on Horse Lake Mountain we only felt a couple of sprinkles. We also got to check some of the cool side scrambles that are on the mountain.
