Mount Cardwell

This was a fun little peak to climb. It’s got really high elevation, but you don’t have to climb that much to get to the top. There’s no trail, so getting there can be a challenge without a GPS to keep you on track until you can see the summit, and to help you find the summit you need to get to. It was wonderful to have to jump from boulder to boulder to get to this peak since I hadn’t been on that terrain in a while. I placed a geocache near the top overlooking some lakes to the north. There was a herd of Moose on the top when I got there. They were gone by the time I was able to get my camera out of my pack and turned on. There wasn’t a soul up there, and nothing could be heard for miles. It was a welcome reentry into the mountain tops.
