View Above Wildhorse


RidgeRat photo

The climbing isn't over. The trail follows the top of Icicle Ridge, ascending, crossing, and re-crossing. After rounding the highest point, views open to the east. Caleb went to the summit to try for a 360 degree panorama shot, while I was satisfied with this view. The Grace Lakes basin is tucked into the fold just below the dark cliffs appearing at the right. The treeless face of Snowgrass Mountain is just out of view to the right.

We need to summon some energy to reach the Wildhorse Trail which runs across this view, just below the top edge of the distant timber line.
