Hike to Taylor Peak with my hiking buddy Marco. We didn't spend much time there: I took a picture of Hallett Peak, and then we continued on to Taylor.

Trail under snow and wow I'm out of shape

Took off from Bear Lake and hit snow after about 45 mins. Followed the tracks of others, but I was not ready to be in the mountains, physically. Worked up to a nice bend overlooking Dream Lake and went back. Wasn't really hoping to make the top. As with any hike/climb in the Rockies, magnificent view!

Flattop  Sucess!

Flattop was the first peak of the day. We continued to Ptarmigan Point, Notchtop, Knobtop, and Gabletop. We started from Bear Lake and descended through Tourmaline Gorge to Odessa Lake and then to Fern Lake trailhead. Windy conditions all day on the divide with dark clouds but no lightning.
