|Perfect hiking weather.|

It isn't a very long hike, but it is pretty strenuous, with 4500 ft of elevation gain over about 2 miles. We hiked and bouldered our way up to the top at around 1:40 PM. Well I guess it wasn't the true peak. The true peak was a couple hundred feet higher, and on the other side of a big ice field. But we still were able to capture a pretty killer view.

By the time we returned, the clouds that had hung around the mid-section of Mount Ray all day had finally burned off. All of a sudden I was nice and warm with the sun shining on me. I felt great after that hike. I of course was oblivious to the fact that I would remain sore from the hike for what is now going on two days. All in all it was a great day to be out with some even greater company.
