I had heard the word Windtower a few times over the past few weeks and it was coming at me from different directions. Then my friend put a Windtower shout out which I heard loud and clear and I hopped on board to hit that place. I had last been up Windtower back in September of 2013 so I looked back at what I had to say about that day and also because it was an official coordinated event I checked out all those details too. Lots has changed since I was last there. The trail from West Wind Pass to just before the last gradual climb is now a whole different ball game with lots more hands on sections, long torn up sections of trail and a scree bash on steep sections. It was not near as user friendly as I remember it was on that September day years ago. What we did find today though was lots to love 💖about being "out & about" here.
We geared up on the side of the road under warmth from the sunshine. 🌞
It was so calm we were afforded reflections.
Spray Lake is one long lake and this is just a portion of it.
We took a short break at a grassy knoll.

view off to many peaks and ridges
deja vu just like in the Dolomites 🎶"the hills are alive"🎶
There were a few great finds hiding in the meadow.
I found this heart shaped rock!
My friend found this fossil!
lots of wildflowers 🌻
