After having hiked up the trail to near where the chairlift ends, I still had a ways to go to get to the very summit of Snow King Mountain. The last photo from the previous post shows the rest of the hike that awaited me:
As you can see, the summit is covered with communications towers.
and there are no-flippin'-trespassing signs there. Argh.
So I stopped. Took some more photos. And took a nap.
Here are some of the photos I took.
Looking toward Jackson and the Tetons (already topped with clouds):
Looking south from near the summit.
And looking west from near the summit. You can see the chairlift terminus and maybe even the windsock (with luck) in this photo.
Since I was not allowed to go the last 20 feet to the summit and was quite tired, I lay in the "meadow" (weeds?) rested, dozed, and maybe even slept a bit. It was very pleasant.
More about the trip down in the next post.
But first.... Again....
