This weekend was suppose to be a camping trip but I threw that by the wayside in favour of summiting something Saturday. I came up with the idea of exploring Forgetmenot Ridge and put the idea out there to see if there was interest, and there was. It took some work to get this together and there were a few circumstances that I had to deal with beforehand, and those, I will choose to forget.
The ascent began right after the crossing and it was long, steep and relentless.
Soon though, the views began.
Forgetmenot Pond as always was pretty.
We could see Nihahi Ridge from one end to the other.
My hope was to hit two high spots today. I had never been to the north cairn and I wanted to make sure I reached that today so that was first on our list. The sky darkened during our photo shoot and then the sprinkles came. I confirmed with all that all was O.K. and got a yes from everyone. We stopped for a quick lunch break, in the showers.
We did a short descent first on our way to the little scramble and the slope was polluted with crocuses.
After the descent and ascent, we could see where we wanted to go next!
We would now go from Forgetmenot Ridge to Forgetmenot Mountain.
What snow there was, was easily avoidable.
With some blue sky, black clouds, no wind, a bunch of troopers, we summited the Mountain!
I like when there are added touches to the scenery.
