Rocky Alps

Was a little nervous that all the smoke from the wildfires around Stanley would thwart our attempt on Thompson Peak, but everything worked out (fire near Redfish Lake trailhead started just an hour after we got back down). The views were among the best I've seen (un-named lake at 9,000 feet is probably the most impressive alpine lake I've been to), and my brother Johnny and I really liked the fun scrambling on the north end of the headwall (went that way to avoid steep snow slope on south end) and near the summit. The Sawtooths definitely get my vote as the next spot that should be made a national park (surprised it's not already one), but maybe it's for the best (we were the only ones going for the summit today).
