Getting above treeline and onto the northern end of the ridge.

Its larch season! And that happens to also be when I take my Russian work mother hiking!

This year when my original plans fell through, I decided at nearly the last minute to take them up Pocaterra Ridge. And go north to south. Maybe it was a bit too much for them in terms of elevation gain and scrambly trail, but they did great anyway!
