 Mt. Harvard - South Slopes   

First 14er of the year - Mt. Harvard. We got to North Cottonwood Trailhead about 9:15 pm and set up the tent in the waning dusk.
We set the alarm for 4:00 am and were on the trailhead by 4:41 am.

One of our first images of Mt. Harvard.

First 3 or 4 miles were relatively flat so we‘re all happy, right?

Image

We met a guy going to fish at Bear Lake - very pretty - don‘t know about the fishing.

Don‘t know the name of this flower but always amazed at God‘s creative skills when doing a 14er.

Image

TaDaaaa! We summit!

Image

Coming down off the summit. One of the few places to scramble on this route.

Image

There was hardly any snow on this route but we found a little snowfield to plod through.


Image

On our way down. No columbines but some beautiful flowers.

Image

All in all it was a very nice hike. This is a very long day. Just a little shy of 14 miles. We were glad we didn‘t do Columbia in the same day. Great day!

This post is very late since I‘ve just been browsing, but the name of those blue beauties is the alpine forget-me-not. They‘re my fav
