Mt. Stuart | Press L to view in lightbox
This sunset photo of Mt. Stuart was taken last Saturday at Ingalls Pass.
Ingalls Pass offers a spectacular display of colorful foliage in middle to late fall especially the Alpine/Subalpine Larch. Larches look like evergreen during spring and summer, but the needles turn golden during fall.
The hike is 9 miles roundtrip with an elevation gain of 2500 ft. The highest point is 6500 ft. It is doable on a day hike, but it's a must to stick around for sunset and sunrise.
There were four of us who went. I almost didn't make it -- I was nurturing a flu, but was intent on going since we had planned this for months.
The view was completely worth it and I don't regret going... I'm just about to crash (not much sleep at camp). I'll catch up with your streams later on. I'll share the rest of the photos when I get a chance to look at them.
Shoutout to Ryan, Gregg, and Corey!
