The perfect Christmas Tree!  It's going to be a long trek to decorate it each year.

This was early on in the trail, but I believe it's Mt. Yale. Please correct me if you know for sure which mountain it is. :-)

The weather was getting iffy by this part of the trail. I was debating on whether to go inside this and wait it out. Pretty cool!

This is about mile 4 on Segment 13 just before you descend the switchbacks to Avalanche Trailhead. The lake is called Rainbow Lake.  You'll see it again when you start climbing the other side.
