What a cold morning for early October it was! I recorded a -1F at Hacking Lake! It was the coldest we have ever camped in October. It was cold enough to freeze much of the lake over.

In the morning, Kimberly, Kessler, Shaylee and I did our best to warm up before setting off up the mountain. Originally we were thinking of climbing Leidy Peak, but because it was cold and windy, we decided that Timberline Point would be less so. Besides, I’d never climbed Timberline Point and it is the eastern most peak in the Uinta Mountains that rises above timberline.

It was a bright and sunny day, but not too windy except where the ridge-tops were really open and barren. The spring on the southeast side of Leidy Peak was all frozen over and we walked across the ice.

From there it was a walk along the west ridge of Timberline Point to the summit. Most of it was pretty easy and up and down, but the final saddle before the summit was a bit tedious with deadfall.

We listed to our church conference along the way and spent some time on the peak before heading back the same way. It was a bit cool, but it was a beautiful and sunny fall day.
