Kings-Emmons Ridge Run  Sucess!

#1 8-15-13 w/ Brent. This adventure is worth the effort. This was the northern 4 (5) day. Thanks to ZeeJay for posting her stats and pics regarding this one-day Uinta rollercoaster peak-bagging marathon. Warning: this is not for the faint of heart, the short-of-breath or the fearers of eternal boulder hopping. #2 7-25-16 With Signe on the long day making up the Kings-Emmons Ridge run. Whew!

from Timothy Lakes Basin  Sucess!

I hiked this one and Trail Rider Peak with my brother Eric on a very windy day. We were attempting Kings Peak from a southern approach but got turned back by the wind and the fact that it was taking much longer than we planned.
