My friends and I reached Healy Pass again. Instead of taking the same trail back, I opted for the seemingly less travelled trail that stretched over the ridge toward the Monarch. The endless clouds slowly moving in and out of Monarch Ramparts looked rather unsettling at first, but it turned out to be one of the unforgettable hikes that I’ve ever done. Always seek land less travelled.
