    From the shore you'll have outstanding views of Ypsilon Mountain, including the snow-filled Y-looking couloirs, from which the mountain derives its name.

The Key Hole on Longs Peak in the Colorado Rockies - 0 views

  •  
    "Are we out of this godforsaken Boulder Field yet?" The famous trek to the Key Hole on Longs Peak requires a difficult slog through the Boulder Field, a rugged section of "trail", roughly 2/3 of a mile in length and climbs about 800 feet. The incredible views on the other side makes it all worth it, as you can see by the pictures.

Hiking to The Loch & Sky Pond in Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park - 0 views

  •  
    Sky Pond, at an elevation 10,905 feet, sits at the bottom of an amphitheatre of sheer cliff walls that box in the lake on three sides. This an incredibly beautiful setting. One person we met said that the Cathedral Spires that ring the western shore of the lake reminded them of Switzerland.

Hike to good ole' Rocky Top in the Smoky Mountains! - 0 views

  •  
    Yes, this is the same Rocky Top that inspired the famous lyrics that is now the fight song for the Univ of Tennessee. This hike is one of the best hikes in the Smokies, especially if you hit the trail in June when the mountain laurel is on full display at Spence Field. Make sure to watch the video.
