So many false summits I almost cried. This one was unexpectedly long and I was all alone. It turned out to be a great day. It was my first time exploring that area of the park. The highlight of the day was stopping at "Upper Red Eagle Lake" on the way down in the late afternoon light. It's one of the most beautiful lakes in the park and I caught it at a perfect time. Unforgettable.
