Mount Herman Climb

Here are some photos from a summer climb up 9,063-foot-high (2,825 meters) Mount Herman, one of the local mountains not many miles from our house. First, a view up a rocky section of the trail.
Next, a view from the top down a dead section of forest.
Here's a view from the top over a rock.
And finally, a wildflower seen on the hike.

  10. Beautiful photos...

    Do you know if the trees suffered from the mountain pine beetle? We read a lot about that when were were there last fall.

    Here is Illinois, we seem to be hit by a number of tree bugs lately. The Emerald Ash Borer seems to be high on the list. Very sad to see so many trees hurt.

  11. The air must be rather thin at that altitude but it sure is lovely there.:)

  12. How long does it take? and was the thin air a problem?
