You can’t see the summit, but it’s up there under the highest cloud that still shows a touch of morning pink. At 10,801 feet it’s not the tallest mountain in these parts, but it’s the closest.

There’s a stretch of jumbled rocky cliffs that give a very different impression of this place, much more lonely, wild, and dangerous.
