I think this page is just awesome. The info and photos alone make it a very good page, but your writing, which conveys your deep love for the area, makes it a great page. Your thoughts on wilderness seem to mirror my own in many ways, and I just thank you for making this page. My only complaint is that it is now complicating my plans for next summer; I had planned on doing some climbing in some remote areas around Yellowstone, but now I am burning to get out to Clark and Capitol, and I won't have time to do them all!
Anyway, if you are interested in attaching another photo of Clark Peak from another angle, see the one below that Mark Thomas took:
Unfortunately, I forgot my camera on that trip.
Thanks for posting this page, Kane!
A couple of typos for you:
"Before you stretch’s the largest of four crystal clear lakes." --> missing words?
"... single-track trail will fade fast. Leaving you with a dreadful, navigational undertaking." --> "...fade fast, leaving you with..."
Wow this peak is a classic. Me and a buddy of mine hitch hiked from Boulder to the trailhead and packed into Pierre Lakes. Such a gorgeous basin, especially for two whilly 17 year olds. The thing about Clark is the rock is so perfect for scrambling. We just had a hoot tooling around on the rock. We had perfect weather and a glorious time. That bushwacken to the lakes was precious. Wooo Hoooo
