Ascent Trip ReportStarted at Sunrise Visitor Center 6:40 a.m. on the Wonderland Trail to Mystic Lake, then off-trail scramble of Mineral Mountain. Round trip 22 miles, 5300' gain with ups and downs along the trail.
I re-scheduled this Mountaineers trip from 9/22 for better weather, and thankful that I did. Gorgeous autumn day with sunshine and only fleeting clouds. The off-trail route is more complex than described in 100 Peaks. However, it was interesting and fun. Mary Lou Biggs provides an excellent description of our trip in Peakbagger.
