Spectacular view  Sucess!

Eighty five minutes up following a pair of ladies who drove a truck to the TH with Arkansas plates. Excellent trail and the view over the lake was easily the best in the park from what I experienced. Nice rock cairns on top too.

Avalanche Peak  Sucess!

Did this one on my drive day back home after a long week of peakbagging in Montana and Wyoming. I had done Windy Peak earlier in the day but still had plenty of time to do this one on my drive though Yellowstone NP. Great hike on a very nice trail.

Great View as always  Sucess!

Hiked many times since 1986. In July I take my spotting scope to the top and look over the basins to the north, west and east. I have seen several grizzlies in the basins in the middle of the day.

Avalanche  Sucess!

Climbed with Hoyt. Met some Canadians on top who, once again, proved that Canadians are the nicest people ever.

Avalanche Peak  Sucess!

Hiked to the summit behind my twin daughters (age 11). A great hike and a great day. Memorable experience for all.

Short and steep  Sucess!

Nice climb despite the wildfire haze from the summit. Very steep and direct.

Great hike  Sucess!

Great views, although a little smokey...can't wait to hike it again on a clear day...

Short Easy Hike  Sucess!

The route description makes it sound steep and heinous but it turned out to be a pleasant hike. Some recent storms had put out all the wildfires so we had superb views.

Short but fun hike  Sucess!

I was up in an 1 1/2 hours on what I would call just a good steady pace and the whole route was done in 2:20 with a little light jog on the way down. All the fires made the view foggy but still beautiful. The description I had said to be careful on the "ridge" up to the summit. This was funny because that ridge is like 20 feet across and than sloping at that on the edges. There were only 4 or 5 people on the hill when I was there.

fun in fresh

nice routefinding fun in a little fresh snow. Dust on crust in the morning ascent, which unfortunately turned to glop on top by descent time.

5 times... still going strong  Sucess!

We've done avalanche multiple times, at all different times in the season, and in both the light and dark. Its one of the easiest big summits to reach inside of the park. A lot of great views, and a lot of great practice for the mountains across the street.

My first summit  Sucess!

My first summit - truly memorable given that a significant portion of the trail was lost in the snow and I had to scramble up a steep scree.

Avalanche Peak Trail  Sucess!

Climbed with my wife on our way out of Yellowstone. Incredible 360 degree views were some of the best I have had on any summit. We could see all the way to the Tetons and beyond on a really clear day.
