Looking to the east, and the others peaks along the Lost River Range, on the knife ridge after coming down Chicken-Out Ridge

A great view after a great climb. Enjoy the downhill, it won't last long.

Looking to the SE at the summit. Congrats, you made it!
Sep 3, 2019 near Challis, ID
A morning view of the reflection pond, thankfully the trail over the years has diverted to this spot.
Jul 11, 2018 near Arco, ID
Early July, just before everything dries out in this high country is the perfect time to hit this trail. The hills are alive!
Jul 11, 2018 near Arco, ID
The only pond left in early July, 2018. A magical time of morning. No photoshop needed here. Only an iPhone 7 and great timing.

The final stretch, straight up with loose debris. Hope you brought a windbreaker! Plan to grind it out, with tired legs and thin air.
