Yep Stewart was a nice summit. Managed to enjoy it mostly smoke free before it came in later in the after noon.

And just like that it's all done! Not nearly as much work when it's only 63 days.

Week 8

That was my favorite BP video. I never went to Ionian. No fish. No trees. My favorite places were close to the timberline. I'd like to see one to one or more of the many places I've bee but still I loved this video.

Yeah Ionian is it's own thing. Kind of a cool place to be but now that I have climbed all the peaks there and pretty much been all over the thing like 5 times I might never go back.

The only thing I wouldn't mind doing in that area is climb an unnamed peak between Ionian and Black Divide Crossing. It's a cool fin of a peak.

Yeah, that's a sweet video!

You got to a bunch of places I hope to get to next summer whether it be via finally overnighting/backpacking, or getting in shape enough to trail run up high. Columbine, Palisades, Pilot Knob area, Great Western Divide, and Ionian Basin are all high on my list. Thanks for sharing your pics!

Hey Rogue -

I've really enjoyed all your photos, videos and TR's. Thanks for making the time to share them with us slackers. Eisen is on my list, your video just further motivated me to get up there.

Cheers man.
