 Chicagoans on Mt. Eolus       

As with the Sunlight/Windom trip report I just shared, this report on the Mt. Eolus is also shared on my own hiking blog with a large assortment of photos, videos, and track files. I also have two panoramas shared which I'm fairly proud of.

Please enjoy and use:

A look at our crampon route through at 6am. In the afternoon it was boot-able
