Katie climbs Mount Wright July 2 2014

Katie on top of Mount Wright with Bob Marshall Wilderness behind her
The views from Mount Wright and the wildflowers so incredible, I had to take Katie back to see them in all their glory.
She identified more than 80 varieties of flowers and did well reclimbing the mountain she hasn't been on top of in more than 10 years ---- a gain of more than 3,200 feet.
The air quality, affected by Canadian fires, lifted well enough that we could see across the Bob Marshall Wilderness and into Glacier Park.
However, looking back toward the Front and the Great Plains, the air was as foul as I've ever seen it --- it looked like Los Angeles in that direction.
This was the second day in a row that I climbed more than 3,000 feet and hiked in excess of 7 miles.
The conditioning is coming right along.
