Alpine Scramble - Granite Mountain & Trico Mountain

The excessive heat and the voracious mosquitoes turned what should have been a great trip into a suffer-fest.

  • Road rough but passable

With age came patience and wisdom,

Hence to home the aged did come,

While the youth proceeded to the lake,

Where heat stress and mosquitoes were their fate!

Translation: Swarms of mosquitoes and unseasonably hot weather bifurcated the group. Those who are retired and can return when the conditions are better avoided the suffer-fest and turned back, while the "tied to their work schedule" peons pushed ahead.
