On the final morning of our trip, we were up super early and hiking in the moonlight to the summit of Square Top. It was a lifetime experience and truly a pleasure to spend it with my buddies John and Ruby!
While I was busy shooting photos, John was making coffee and ruby was trying to stay warm.
Square Top is the highest peak for many miles as you can see.

Enjoying coffee at the moment of sunrise!
Same view, no people.
Looking over Blackmare Lake with the trees on the ridge soaked in sunshine.
So this is one of the coolest things about sunrise on a mountain top. Look off in the distance to see Lake Cascade, but also notice our summit shadow way access the valley! Also conformation we are on a high peak!
John and I headed down the mountain after finishing a couple cups of coffee. We peaked over the eastern ridge one last time to say goodbye to Square Top Lake.
The view, with the hazy sky, looked like a painting.
Good news, headed out tomorrow for another epic mountain adventure. Y’all come back soon now ya hear!
