Rock Climbing Photos : Alpine : My Valley, My Home

My Valley, My Home

My Valley, My Home

This was taken on the shortest day of the year, when the sun rose at 10:30AM and set at 3:30PM. I went on a hike/climb through Mile High Saddle, and just before I reached tree line, I turned and saw this incredible view up the valley behind me. The base of this glacial carved valley is about 500 feet above sea level, while the summits you see are between 6000 and 7000 feet tall. Hows that for vertical relief? That is Polar Bear Peak on the right with the pointed summit.
