Brachiopod Mountain from the campground.
Scramble: Small peak described as an easy scramble. The very top proved to be challenging for me. I stowed my poles in order to use both hands up two slabby sections. I'm not a climber, that's exhilarating! Within a short time I was standing on the summit and I could see Fab and the doggies below. The view is awesome, I really love this region. After a short while I headed down to hang out with the company. Near the end of the quick descent, Winston and Mickey met up with me for a second time today, all happy to see me with super tail wag action. Fab and I ate naturalized chives on the lower trail around Baker Lake; we wonder how they got there! Pictures are taken from Fab's video footage.
