First Timpanogos of the Season!

First Timpanogos of the Season!

Oh hallelujah! I finally got up Timp! I got dumped on by a huge rainstorm and freezing wind on the way up, and then baked in sweltering hot humidity on the way down. In other words, amazing. I was a slow day though. I stopped under some trees a few times to wait out the rain and some huge groups of people (way more than the 15 person limit for Wilderness Areas) created some long traffic jams at the snow crossings.

Working up to the saddle
Summit Ridge looking nice and stormy from the saddle
Obligatory summit picture
Looking north into Timpanogos Basin. Getting green.
Looking east and down into Emerald Lake basin – still snow.
