Belmore Brown - Early Winter Alpine 📷

in photography •  2 years ago  (edited)

This hike was a couple of months ago now, but finally getting the panoramas posted.
Before the access road closed for the winter season to this area, we made a summit hike of Belmore Brown, a medium size hike (750m elevation gain). Was great weather in the lower elevations, sunny and warm with sloughs and bogs to skirt around on the approach in.

The cold wind and snow was howling up in the upper peaks so we knew we'd have a cold summit. We did, and didn't stay long at all. Hope you enjoy the pics.

Note: Click images for larger views!

This is heading up to the saddle to make the final summit approach. this valley is where we've come up from.

Some really nice nearby peaks I've yet to do, this one is Tiarra Peak. A long ridge gets you there, but not today.

Quite a contrast n the lower valley to the next photo, up at the rige line.

The wind was howling and pretty dangerous at the ridge and summit. Ice pellets slamming the face made us move double time to make it up and back.

Out of the wind, it was a great day, sunny and warm.

On the way down, I snapped this snowing some of the whirling ice and show tornados. you can't tell in a single photo, but this is spinning wildly and when they hit you, they easily knocked us down!

Down in the trees and forest provided shelter and warm. Plus a beautiful view of the snowy peaks.

And last but not least, looking back form the road at the car, the peak we did is the brown peak at the right, and the approach was up from behind it, where there is snow. This front side is all cliffs and doesn't seem to collect snow and the leeward side.


This it for now, thanks for joining me on this adventure, and see you on the next!

Wow, what a stunning view out there. I live in Panama and I can't complain about the views I have here but still, there is something amazing in those tops covered in snow. Way too hot to see those in Panama :)

My husband can walk right up Long's Peak without slowing down to catch his breath even once.

muy bonitas tus pic congratulations man

wow your posts looks really amazing, good jop, goog photographies.

Yeah I remember the winters in the 80's when I was a kid, seeing images like those take me back, I used to clown around with my friends (LOL, more like associates because they were assh---s).

But I didn't let it get me down, and I learned to appreciate it later on in life. It's simple things like that which keeps great memories alive and kicking.

(Especially the steep hill we used to snowboard down, until Harold jump on going down the hill on the board ran straight into that rigid boarded wooden fence.. Yeah, he got 4 stitches on his forearm that day. And believe me he NEVER forgot that moment still to this day. Haha.)
