Hiram Peak, Highland Lakes, June 23, 2018

After skiing some of the frontside patches earlier in the week, I returned with Michele, Makisha and Penny to explore some areas around the back bowl of Hiram Peak.

A panoramic view on the approach.

We traversed across the bottom of back bowl over to one of the beautiful pond areas.

After taking three runs on the back bowl area, we headed back over the ridge to the frontside facing Highland Lakes.

This run brought us close to Highland Lakes where we cooled off.

Days like today help Highland Lakes remain high on the to-do again list.
