 Huron - standard route  

It was a great hike starting with what seemed like a million switchbacks to get up to treeline and then have nice views of the summit and 3 apostles just above treeline. It was amazing how accurate Bill's report was about the somewhat steep grassy rise from about 12,200 to 13,500 before the last push to the summit. Also, great trailhead the entire way and not really having to deal with any scree or talus (versus Quandary or Bierstadt being different for example).

View of Taylor Resrvoir?

The pictures are great. I was wondering if you were able to see Taylor Reservoir pretty clearly from the top. It would have been the Lake located mainly west (somewhat southwest) from the top?

Good shot of the apostles! I thought the views from Huron were quite great, but I wasn't really digging the size of the tiny summit. There were only about eight people while we were up there but I felt a little crowded.
