This was one of Wayne Wild Wilderness Walks and there were six of us old guys.
It was a glorious day, with clear skies and 360 views from the top that included the Continental Divide and Elkhorns, Big Belts, Adels, Flint Creeks and Rocky Mountain Front ranges.
The wildflowers were glorious, particular the pink Douglasia that clumped in disturbed areas of bright red argullite.
Last Thursday's snowstorm deposited considerable new snow that we had to punch through in the last 1,500 feet of elevation gain.
We walked roughly 9 miles and gained and lost more than 3,300 feet.
