Went for Flat Top Mountain this morning, not the one pictured, of course. After clearing the tree line the snow was pretty deep and I didn’t bother to bring my snow shoes, so every step was a struggle. I did made up to the overlook over Emerald Lake, had some food and decided to call it quits and head back down.
Longs Peak looked pretty awesome most of the morning, poking its head in and out of the clouds. Every time I look at it, I picture my self back there at the summit, observing the park from its highest point.
And of course wild life is always welcome on a hike, especially at 11,000 feet high elevation.
