Dianne and I celebrate my 30th birthday by climbing Sawtooth Mountain in the Indian Peaks (12,304ft)
On the approach, Elk Tooth is on the left
Wildflower meadow and stream just below Red Deer Lake
The east ridge of Sawtooth. It is a fun ridge, mostly a hike, but with a few easy 3rd class moves.
The north face of Paiute Peak, as seen from Sawtooth's east ridge
Pagoda, Longs and Meeker (left to right) as seen from Sawtooth's east ridge
The top of the ridge is a talus slope. This is looking down the ridge from the slope.
