Saw All The Views

 Lower Ausable Lake
 Top of Sawteeth
 The Great Range
Gothics from Sawteeth

On Thursday we set out for our last High Peak to do. We began our hike at 6:30 from the Ausable club and made the long walk to the end of the Lake Road. We took a stop at Rainbow Falls then headed up the Scenic Trail. It was really rugged going along the lake but very pretty. Once we started heading up the mountain the climb was very steep and hard but there were many amazing lookouts onto the lake. The trail wasn't too long but took us a good three hours to get to the summit. We reached the top at 11:45. We brought sparkling apple cider with us to celebrate. It was hard to wrap my head around the fact that I had finished. It didn't seem like I would ever be finished. There's always another mountain to climb and another view to see. We left the summit at 12:15 and headed down the opposite side to the trail that goes up to Pyramid. The climb down was quick and we were back on the Lake Road at 2:15. We made our back to the car and finished up at 3:30 as 46ers.
