A Summer Afternoon Hike  Sucess!

I hiked to the summit of Harney Peak on the afternoon of 19 July 2010, starting at the Sylvan Lake trailhead. It was a beautiful day with pleasant temperatures at altitude. It was also the peak of the tourist season, with lots of vacationers enjoying the trail along with me. The climb gets fairly strenuous toward the summit, but the view is worth it. This was my 27th state highpoint.

Harney Peak  Sucess!

This was my first SHP. My family and I were on vacation in the area and I thought that it would be a fun hike... little did I know that there was a whole community of people out there specifically chasing down SHPs.

Castle at the Top  Sucess!

Fun to see the castle on top. But even more fun to see the mountain goat grazing there. Hiked it on the journey from Utah to New York.

great views  Sucess!

Hiked with my girlfriend, very easy hike and incredible view from the summit. Worth the time to do. 2-3 hours round trip depending on how much time you goof off.

Harney  Sucess!

I came in on I think it was the #4 trail which seemed like the shortest. Lots of interesting rock formations to be seen from along the trail and good views from the top. Extremely crowded but I guess that is to be expected.
