Had to stop and take pictures on the way up to Tolmie Peak.

View from the bridge.
First good view of the Mountain.
It was absolutely beautiful when we got there.
This is an absolutely beautiful lake at the beginning of the hike. I'd be there all the time except for the 20 mile washboard dirt road between there and the world.
Apparently these bloom only right before the first snow.
Great views up into the high mountain meadows and rocky peaks on the way up.
There's a turnoff for the Wonderland Trail. Looked beautiful, but from where we were, the trail went down about 500+ feet about instantly. Wow would that be a lot of work with a pack.
We turned around at about 1/2 way as it was getting COLD. Note the ear-flaps! Remember those blue flowers? It snowed that night.
Lichens were everywhere.
On the way back, got to see the lake & mountains with low clouds a good breeze.
Those are "100 feet from the car" smiles!
