Got picked up by Howie and Jessica. We went up Little Cottonwood and started the hike. Pretty easy hiking up to the pass. After that there is just a long scramble ahead. I was surprised at how long the scramble really was. We hit a few false summits along the way. After topping out on Superior we could see lots of snow on the east ridge of Monte Cristo. We almost turned back, but decided to take a closer look. glad we did. The snow was easily avoided.. though we had to play around on it a bit. After summiting, we rested a bit and ran down.
Probably the most memorable part is the mountain goats. There were tons of them. We would come around a tree only to see a mountain goat 10 feet away. Pretty sweet.
