Visit narrative:
Starting from Snowshoe but we hiked the good trail to twin lakes. Just before the lakes a trail branches to the north up to Sage Pass. Once you make the pass there is a lightly travelled trail that continues mostly north to meet the ridge about halfway to the summit. This allows you to cut the corner to the east. Distance from cabin: ~7km Hike time: 2h15m The station is more or less the exact summit, which has a small cairn and a park boundary marker. We set up the tripod quite low (1-1.5 m) just on the north side of the cairn (for location 1). We changed this and raised the camera for later shots. The BC side of this hill is still burnt to a crisp. Not much regeneration. But we did see very clear Black Bear tracks and a small herd of Bighorn sheep.
Weather narrative:
Sunny - only scattered clouds. There were showers to our west for a bit, but they seem to have died out. Some high cloud cover to the north and west.
