Our first destination was a horse camp in the summer.
The Ramparts mountain range is a climber's destination.
Forested valleys stretch out in all directions. Shaped by the harsh climate, these lodgepole pines are tall and skinny and several hundred years old.
Out next stop for a couple of nights was an Alpine Club cabin deep in the woods on the shoulder of Outpost Mountain.
Over the top towards Mount Eremite.
Lunch stop. Thankfully, the sun came out and warmed us up!
Heading back to the cabin after a long and rewarding day.
Our reward was a glass of wine and hot dinner. It doesn't get any better .
