With no direct views back down to the starting point, and some higher hills nearby, it doesn't look like much of a summit up here. However, I have risen nearly 3000 feet over 22 miles since leaving Baker a few hours ago, and my leg muscles are aware of that.

While munching on another Clif bar, I check out some of the wildflowers I see in the area.
