Going up Red Mountain 1, we see some of the distant mountains.
Pam has walked up a rise to get a better view of Red Mountain 1, the mountain we are on.
As we drive over that rise, we see we are near the summit, and will go no higher on this mountain.
A pool of water from snowmelt still exists just below the summit.
We now enter Hurricane Pass and get a view into the valley created by a circle of mountains. The fireweed here is in full bloom.
We pass an old head frame over a collapsed mine shaft, then a small stream of water indicating very little snow left above.
We see some nice color in the rocks, and a patch of snow that is hanging on. Then another mine shaft that has been collapsed to prevent people from going in.
We get our first views of Lake Como, where we planned to have lunch. For me, this is one of the prettiest places I've seen.
Sitting next to the lake by ourselves (for only a few minutes, due to heavy Jeep traffic) was very pleasant.
