Two scrambly peaks and some fishin'.

After not enough recovery from yesterday's brush beat-down on Beaverdam Peak, we were visiting the opposite side of the valley today, heading to a view of the Cly basin. It had rained some overnight, and the clouds were still malingering.

Another off-trail hike with these two? Tom was reviewing his life insurance policy.

Lots to look at on your way over the ridge. This is Burnside Peak.

On the other side of the ridge, we did a short traverse to a boulder field.

On the other side of the boulder field, it's easier going. As the clouds finally leave us, Ruby pauses to enjoy the sun.

I have to apologize on the lack of photos, but it's familiarity. The first time up a peak, I'm excited to document everything. But after that, I'm happy to just enjoy the views. So I didn't take any pictures of the ridge scramble, but here we are on the summit.

Here's where we were sitting. Zoomed summit photo from later in the day. Trailhead

More views.

Here's Beaverdam again.

This is looking southerly, with Sawtooth Peak rearing its head on the horizon. Centered is 65ish Peak, our next scheduled stop.

65ish zoomed in a bit.

Notice the fall colors. And Cly 1, sort of at its base.

Zoomed in a bit more, here's the summit of 65ish. A few trees and a couple blocks of granite. Trailhead
Here's Sawtooth zoomed in a bit. Trailhead
And speaking of fall colors, if you didn't notice that little splash in the previous photo, here it is zoomed in. Trailhead

We found a cool way to get to Cly 1, then proceeded to catch a few brookies.

Meanwhile, there was some sort of critter on the opposite hillside that had Ruby's hackles up. Time to go investigate.

On the north ridge of 65ish. Tom's orange top sort of camouflaged him.

Trailhead

So much to look at. And take pictures.

The view from the foot of the summit block.

Dave took pictures of Tom and I 'a cheval' on the summit block. Visit the link below to see Dave's photos.
