Mount Nebo

North Summit, July 28, 2012

The highest peak in the Wasatch Range, Mount Nebo, beckoned us to her summit. The north route is a fairly new trail to the North Summit, the highest point at 11,928 feet. It is steep and loose in spots, but I felt strong and it didn't seem as tiring as the longer Timpanogos trails, somehow. We did get into a lightning storm coming off the main summit, and somehow we all made it down the long and exposed ridges safely. The wildflowers were fantastic, with lupine (I remembered that one!), sunflowers, Indian paintbrush and lots of others. The yellows were particularly perfumy. Many thanks to Roger Brown for organizing a fantastic trip!
