Mount Yale, a Video Trail of the Trail

Mount Yale is as beautiful as it is hard to hike.  As steps past the scenery rolls up the mountain in a broad expanses of mountain ranges and valley floors as far as sight allows.   After the steep climb of switch back above tree line you reach a saddle before the false peak and peak.  The vista’s from this vantage point are very inspiring.  From here you scramble up over granite boulders and small bits of a narrow trail to the summit.   This is my third 14er, Mount Yale vista’s so far are hard to beat.

Did the hike to the summit on the last weekend of June, weather was really quite perfect, other than a little lightning around noon.  Lightning is one of nature’s wonders you need to be completely aware of at all times.

In this group of sequence’s you travel the first mile and half or so.  On this hike you start out climbing from the trailhead.

Tough enough to climb 50 plus 14er’s, backpack the 500 plus miles of the Colorado Trail or any other wilderness area, wading a river to gently placing a fly in front of a rising trout.
