Well today I went for a climb close to home. I decided to try and take my mother who did suprisingly well. We started from the trail head at 7:15 and made our way up at a good pace for having her with me.

After getting to the flat area below sloan lake we were in a little group of ptarmigans.
We made our way up to sloan lake and continued along following up the trail leading to all the switchbacks.
Some of the trail.

After reaching the saddle we stopped for a couple pictures to take in the beautiful scenes.

False summit my mother started getting scared of hights and she decided to sit back like 150 ft from the summit.
You can see my mother wish she made it.
Reached the summit at 9:20am alone and stayed for just a moment before i left.
Bad self photo on the summit
Back to the car and some shots of animas forks.
