West Spanish Peak Hike

Yesterday we decided to avoid the smoke form the nearby Spring Fire and go south into the mountains to hike the West Spanish Peak Trail. Heather and I hiked to the top of the treeline and then I continued solo to the top of West Spanish Peak - 13,625'

I had a few light snow flurries at the top and enjoyed the spectacular views. It was a very tough scramble to the top - very rewarding once I got up there. Looking forward to future hikes like this!

Goal of the day - to reach the summit of West Spanish Peak

The trail head starts to Cordova Pass - a nice parking area with restroom facilities.

Heather hiking with me up to the top of the timberline.

Photo op before I start up above timberline to the summit.

Just follow the cairns! Not always easy to see them, but eventually they appear.

At the summit of West Spanish Peak - it was about to snow in a minute - only a light flurry.
