Hiking through alpine meadows as we get underway. At this point, we are on an old logging road.
Stopping for breath, and to wait for those of us who were slower!
A nice Blue Columbine growing out of the talus
Climbing to the ridge on an elk trail
Dean, at our first view point
Mark, apparently preparing to jump?
Part of the group climbing through the next band of cliffs
View from the top of the next climb.
Gary, Dean and Susan at another stunning viewpoint.
Starting to mosey through the high meadows. We are heading to the next ridgetop on the left of center.
Yes, there were wildflowers, thank you.
Lunch stop at the top of the Hour Glass formation. Far, far below is highway 160 snaking over Wolf Creek Pass.
Jeff is pointing out another great off-trail route on the opposite side of the valley
Another view of our lunch spot, looking towards Lobo Overlook.
Mark, don't jump!!
Sue leading part of the gang along the cliff tops.
Having come up (1330 ft) we must go down.
Back into the woods. Completely off trail, but we know our shuttle car is down there someplace!
The clouds are beginning to look a little wicked above the "Old Man of the Mountain" as we wait for our shuttle
Waterfall on Wolf Creek, with Fireweed, at the end of our hike. Only a few rain drops fell before we were in the cars, then the skies opened.
