Standhope Peak

Brad Mitchell and I ventured into the mountains on Sunday and climbed Standhope Peak. One of the iconic peaks in the Pioneers affords an incredible view of the Central Idaho High Country and is a great way to run off the sauce after two 100 milers in a month.

Some photos from the day...

Cruising through the grass and flowers on the way up.

The peak itself as seen from Goat Lake.



Goat Lake. Highest Lake in Idaho (10,400 ft)

Brad on the Summit. Watch out for this guy at the Pike's Peak Ascent.



"How does this thing stand up so high up here?"


Lovin' the high country!

Guess when I'm not there you guys need to bring your own camera. Fantastic pics. Looked like a great outing and a great day.

Gorgeous scenery. Looks like fun.

I noticed you removed the Bear from your race schedule- are you not doing it anymore?

Is that a skort you're wearing on the summit? And I thought manpris were questionable...
