26 Miles Backpacking and Summiting Mount Langley Via Cottonwood Lakes and New Army Pass

Unnamed Image
Mount Langley

Just recently went on a backpacking trip with a friend from college on the Cottonwood Lakes trail! I'm happy to report that we summited Mount Langley successfully too! 26 miles and so we slept at Long Lake and summited via New Army pass. One of my favorite trails so far!

I wrote up a trip report on my blog, along with all kinds of good details like mileage, elevation gain, the route we took, permitting requirements, etc.

Like I said, more trip details in the blog, but here are a few more photos from the trip! Loved it out there!

Congrats

Nice report over on your blog. Always extra satisfying when reaching the summit takes more than one attempt.
