Richmond Pass 7/15/16

"Hiking is the answer.....who cares what the question is?"

Richmond Pass is always on the short hiking list.  It's just a wonderful hike for any reason.  This day was perfect in every way.

Up through the aspens in the morning sun.

Looking back to the Red Mountains....a pathway in paradise.

Rising higher.  Looking down on the Red Mountains and the Corkscrew Pass jeep road.

It was unusual that there were still snow drifts at the pass this time of year.

View from the pass looking west into Yankee Boy Basin and Imogene Pass.

Abundant wildflowers just above Half Moon Basin - looking east.
