Needle Peak

Needle Peak as seen from the area commonly known as the Flatiron. Flashback-Friday to the second hike on which we took our shiny new digital SLR, back in July 2009. As soon as we’d taken it on a couple of hikes we found ourselves wondering why we hadn’t bought one sooner… We’re still using it too 🙂 📷

It took me two attempts to finally get to the summit of Needle Peak, with either a short scramble blocking my way or the weather turning against us. This photo was taken on our first visit to the area and we didn’t really know enough about the route to make it safely to the summit. But that was fine: the area we did get to explore was quite fantastic and much more mellow and enjoyable terrain, plus we got great views of Needle Peak itself!
