Pictures from a trip me and a couple freinds did up Mount Cowen back in September of 2011, as well as random photos of Cowen from different angles. Cowen is one of my favorate peaks in the Greater Yellowstone. It has Teton sized granite cliffs, and is also very remote. A trip to Cowen will take you into some very beauteful country.
