What the sign says

More of the sign

Approaching the hill

No snow on the south slopes

Then bang, snow still on the north slopes

Approaching the top

Mount Elden from the top

San Francisco Peaks with Agassiz to the left, Humphreys to the right

Stick Scott's head got cold, so I lent him my cap

North view of O'Leary Peak and Sunset Crater

East view of Merriam Crater, I think

Summit ridge viewed from afar
