6/21/17 w/huge group of people for summer solstice!
6/23/17 went back up to camp on the summit
Started from Camp Misery and hiked the trail following the northwest ridge. It was smoky due to all of the wildfires in the area.
With Rebecca Lahr via Trail 717. Absolutely no views on top due to cloud cover. Continued on the trail down towards Picnic Lakes before looping out to the trailhead.
What a great climb. Ran into a goat too. It was definitely a hot one but such great views.
First peak in the Swans, was happy to summit with my girlfriend. Not much snow at the top, and great weather with clear views!
A jewel in the jewel.
Had a great afternoon hike with Amy & the dogs. Up the trail on the NW Ridge, then over to Picnic Lakes for a pit stop before looping back to the car. Great hike, a classic for sure.
Was in the area doing some snow/glacier travel training and decided to bag the peak. Great day to be out. Pass lots and lots of people on their way up to the top.
Hiked with my husband and a few friends. Was foggy and chilly but beautiful country and nice views into the Jewel Basin
Another foggy, windy, chilly day but it was still a great hike. The trail was loaded with huckleberries for an added bonus. The summit gave us a view into the east valley and that's a beautiful area to backpack and fish.
Nice little hike.
Great views. hiked with rebelgrizz & cougar14
A couple of winter climbs through out the years.
Made a quick trip on 4-wheelers to Camp Misery then up the jeep trail for a while. Then an ascending traverse past the snow-tell station and up to the ridge above. There are a number of cornises along the ridge overlooking Picnic Basin. Great day with great friends.
I Try to do it several times a year.
Nice little hike.
Just wish the road was better.
Great BC skiing if you have a sled or 6 miles of uphill stamina
Hiked with Rebelgrizz and JFK. Great views of glacier peaks and Flathead Valley.
Did Aeneas as a part of a 3 day backpacking trip with my boys, ages 4 and 6. Came up from Birch Lake via the trails. Lots of goat action at the summit. GPS showed .25 miles from summit to camp (vs. 3 miles by trail), so we attempted Aeneas direct Birch Lake via the southeast ridge on the way down. Abandoned that idea quickly as it wasn't good terrain for a 4 year old.
Been up there numerous times since I was a kid. Now continuing the family tradition with my own kids.
