Hiking towards Mt Morgan (high point)
Hiking towards Mt Morgan (high point)

Two weeks ago we headed out to the east side for a casual, relaxing fall colors weekend. Of course, at the last minute, Sooz and I decided to climb Mt Morgan, a really fun and easy nearly-14k peak. It wasn’t necessarily so easy for us since we weren’t prepared or acclimated, but the terrain and route finding was straightforward enough that the acclimation was really our only enemy. I explain the route in the captions in my images in my Smugmug album, so if you’re interested head over there for a peek. Here are a few shots of the climb – definitely a worthwhile summit!

The next day we drove the June Lake loop in search of fall colors. They were a bit disappointing this year but it was still a great time with great friends, and that’s ALWAYS worth it!
