Mount Morgan (S) (13748')

On Saturday, my friend Joe and I did a day hike from Rock Creek Lake to
Mount Morgan (S) via Francis Lake. It was a nice hike - we picked up
the use trail that heads up the hill to the right of the drainage that
runs into Lake Francis, which avoided the boulder-filled drainage.
From there it was just a traverse to the saddle and up the ridge to
the summit (more or less).

The view is great from the top of Morgan.

Here are my pictures:

Morgan has some great views!

That boulder field was a pain! We were just south of you guys that day.

Morgan was a nice trip - it was a moderate hike, which was great because I was in no mood for a death march. We were able to take our time on the way up an the way down without worrying about starting real early or running out of daylight.

When I was up there Oct 16 04 there was snow at the summit and the following morning the first snow of the winter hit. Looks like your pics were dry, such a change from year to year.
PS: I was at Rock Creek Lake Sat afternoon, climbed Pointless Peak on Sun, probably went right by each other at some point.

Conditions do change fast out there. I wish I knew you were out there - it would have been nice to meet you.
