Mount Elwell

Elwell12

Most of Packer involves taking the same hikes and visiting favorite haunts. I photograph these of course but since they’re variants of the same thing, I can be more choosy about which photos I truly like and am not taking photos just to show where I went.

This year though we took a new hike to the top of Mount Elwell. New hike means I overdocumented it and have enough photos for a standalone post. We’ve avoided this hike for a long time since it looked nasty—hot, exposed, not pretty. Weather looked good this trip to avoid the heat and exposure so we decided to give it a try. Much to our surprise, the hike turned out to be very nice with a constant breeze, well-maintained trail, and excellent views.

So not just a new hike to say we did. But one to add to the rotation of hikes to return to each year.
