Monitor Pass, Leviathan Peak, May 14, 2017

This would be our third time up here in seven days. With a storm forecast for the afternoon, we had a wide variety of conditions. We started with a few snow flurries followed by moving clouds and even some sunshine. We did a combination of snowshoeing, dry hiking, and bootpacking.

Looking back again.

It was well worth the return trip. We also finished before the storm rolled in.
