As getting close to the end of the ridge that led me closer to the Monarch, the view of the entire area from this spot literally left me speechless in awe. Utterly unreal, I thought to myself. Then, I noticed Eohippus Lake, which sat at the bottom of the mountain. I wondered what it would be like gazing up at the 11,600 plus feet high mountain from the lake. I’d find out soon enough, I told myself. While the rain clouds steadily travelled over my head, the wind picked up a little bit. I put on my windbreaker. Warm. Good. I took another 360-degree sweeping glance. What a view… And then I resumed my march toward the mountain.
