Heading up starting in the gully.

30th Birthday Hike! I've been meaning to do Observation Peak on my birthday for a few years now, but weather or snow conditions didn't allow it. This year it was obviously going to be sort of a waste to go up there due to the haze from all the forest fires, but I went anyway. I plan on doing most of the peaks in the area so I didn't need perfect views today. Just nice to get out and hike on my birthday.
