Mt. Ladonia Hike – June 23
We waved farewell to our expert Caver Kevin the week and started our the last week of the trip with a hike up Mt. Ladonia. It was a relatively short journey but the scenery was spectacular. As we hiked above tree line I found myself surrounded by a field of wildflowers and began shooting.
The alpine was truly spectacular but the weather began to turn and we found ourselves once again whited out and faced with high winds.
As the weather progressed we realized the Ladonia was not a safe option but decided to summit the adjacent peak. As we ascended a snow field above a pristine alpine lake, we found ourselves completely surrounded by mist and clouds!

All I can say was that as hard as it was hiking up, it was a blast coming down!
