Quartz Lake Looning

Vulture Peak

The Quartz Lake Loop has a love/hate relationship with me. The hike up and over Cerulean Ridge in the morning is long, gradual and not a killer on fresh legs. After you drop down into the lovely chain of lakes, you have the hike over Quartz Ridge, also named “Cardiac Ridge” as the trail takes the shortest mile over the ridge.

Overall, however, it was a beautiful day with Common Loons and other birds as well as copious amounts of flowers and wonderful views.
