This peak has a number, not a name at RMNP- July 10

Another early morning. Rocky Mountain National Park is crazy busy which is great, until you want to find a parking spot. Then you selfishly rather wish it wasn’t so busy. Our target today was an unnamed peak referred to as Peak 12,150 on the Continential Divide. Chad had stumbled on this particular hike after talking to a guy up at Sky Pond and then doing some further research. 

Like the Sky Pond hike, this one exceeded expectations. We were above the tree line for most of it, on a windswept, cold, bare trail. It was amazing! We saw mountain goats and met a nice couple who we shared lunch with before they continued onward. 

Again, I’ll let the photos do the talking.
