My son and I actually ended up here by accident, via Peru Creek near the old Pennsylvania Mine. With it being around noon, we decided to take a shot at it. The trail heading up wasn't the greatest, and hadn't been traveled in some time. It appears in two spots, a minor rockslide had washed out the trail. Wasn't terrible, just loose, and after prodding my kiddo a bit, we got across them. Once up higher elevation on the switchback, the trail while small, was fine. The view from the top is amazing! We'll do this again with a better camera next year. Was a great test for the kiddo and I to tackle the Grays/Torrey's combo next summer.
What a gorgeous day!!! Shelf Lake is pretty spectacular. Amazed by the amount of wild flowers still in bloom! Saw just a few folks on-trail. Naturally had the peaks all to ourselves. Scree descent sucked a bit, but Sen seams to enjoy such chaos. ;-)
