Ascent Trip Report

This is an unnamed high point in the Cloud Peak Wilderness in Wyoming. It offers great views of Darton and Bighorn Peaks to the east. I was planning on a much longer hike, but Wyoming had a very harsh winter and even in July there was more snow still around than anyone would have predicted. Nevertheless, it was a very enjoyable afternoon in one of my favorite places. Since it has no name I decided to label it after my youngest daughter--she likes to hike with me! I rated the climb/hike a 6 even though it was a short, very easy hike, because on the day I was there, conditions were absolutely beautiful and I love that entire area so I definitely have a bias.
