Prospect Rd./Baden Powel/St. Georges/Per Gynt...
...Mt. Fromme. : )
Drops steeply down to the 'Eric the Red' trail and a talus field/creek running down from Grouse Mt.
Then rises steeply with the occasional bushy section.
Still rising steeply amongst the big trees to Thunderbird Ridge.
Thunderbird Ridge. : )
Decided to stay on trails and hit up the Frommes' again on the descent, instead of descending the road. This time we briefly had views on top, so it was cool to see Lynn Ridge and The Needles from this side.
There is one very short spot just before the south Needle that I always feel a bit exposed, and this picture confirms my suspicion. : )
This whole trip was all new to us, and a great trip it was despite the lack of sun and views. You have to enjoy tree travel to appreciate this one. Definitely a chill in the air now. : )
