Monday was a beautiful day so we decided to climb Chimney Mountain (near Indian Lake) ... short but steep (about 1000' in a mile). 360 degree views at the summit.

start of the trail ...

rock formations ... we're about a 1/4 mile from the actual summit here

even closer shot of some of the high peaks (I believe the one to the far right with all the slides is Gothics)

Very nice! I once went up an icy Snowy Mtn in Dec...think 1999. I must have looked across at you. Is that as roadless of an area as it looks in photos?

Yes, from Snowy you would have looked across towards Chimney. I have hiked Snowy in winter too, and it was a blast sliding back down the trail on my back, snowshoes up in the air.

Much of the area is indeed roadless. Chimney Mtn is in the Siamese Ponds Wilderness area.

I'd like to get back there. Your reports are enticing. I really enjoy them.
