Mt Headley (2)

For the next mile or so trail 528 pretty much follows a ridge line and in the open places between the trees there are nice views on both sides, the cliffs that are on the west side of Carbine Lake to the south and the area around Image Lake to the north.

  2. It’s funny…some people (me) see beautiful scenery like that a few times in their lifetimes and you see it every single day.

    • When I retired I realized that I still had a few good years left and what better way to spend them than to see as much of this beautiful back country as possible. I have been concentrating on bringing back images to let other folks see a bit of what’s out there too.

  3. I especially like your photo of the tree with the broken top. That pictures shows the dried foliage and weathered trunk very well. Beautiful!

    • That’s all part of the forest and I consider it part of the beauty of the wild country. Trees, alive or dead or part of both, to me are part of the wonder.

  4. Now that is rugged territory. And, do I see snow?
    The sky in the first shot is beautiful.

    • Yes, there was still snow up there on the lee side of the ridges. Not as much as in most years, but enough to support the springs and small streams that originate up there.

    • That’s why I love the back country. In these posts I want to show parts of it that are not seen from the roads or from the bottom up.
