Ominous Clouds

Nice series of photos from Lewis Peak. I like the sky above Big Ben. I was out hiking on that day and had the same dark clouds in my photos.

Re: Ominous Clouds

Where were you at? I was surprised that I didn't see anyone on Lewis that day. I guess maybe those clouds made everyone think twice. Thanks for the comments.

Re: Ominous Clouds

I was hiking up a new route on Bountiful Peak. The next day I climbed a peak on the northeast side of Mount Ogden. It was cloudy on both days so I think that kept all of the people away.

Re: Ominous Clouds

which side of Bountiful Peak were you going up?

Was the peak on the Mt. Ogden ridge?

Re: Ominous Clouds

I went up the west side of Bountiful Peak. The route is called Davis Creek and has several waterfalls. The trail isn’t finished yet and is sometimes hard to follow. I think this will be the most direct route up the mountain when it is completed.

Yes, I was on the ridge that extends northeast of Mt. Ogden. The people at Snowbasin call this one No Name Peak. Then I climbed Sardine Peak which has a good view. I was surprised to find a nice trail to the saddle to overlooks Ogden Canyon. I had been to this area before but it was always covered in snow.
