Ascent Trip ReportA glorious trip with the illustrious James Barlow accompanied by Becca Romig and Zelda the dog!
The hike began with a pleasant walk through the woods and across some small streams. Once at Rachel Lake we ecountered dozens of other hikers but it wasn't too crowded. We continued past and on the approach to Alta only encountered a couple of folks as we were hiking later in the day.
It was over a beautiful hike and of course Zelda had a blast. The mountain goats were absolutely magical to encounter! Great situational awareness, James! We would have missed them if it weren't for you! In fact, if you hadn't noticed we probably would have lost Zelda over the edge of a cliff as she attempted to chase them down the mountain.
