Talk to a climbing ranger about East Ridge of Eldorado Peak via Eldorado Creek
F 9, 1/320 sec, ISO 200, 66 mm
My wife and I did a 4 day climb of Eldorado Peak. This required extensive glacier travel in an alpine environment, which provided expansive views of the surrounding mountains. As I topped out along this ridge, I turned around and saw my wife trudging up the snowfield with the rock formations we passed along the way behind her. This image really captures the effort required to achieve this high vantage point, as well as the incredible view from the top. She also provided the scale to show how vast this area is.
