hiking
1 day ago

A really beautiful hike; my friends and I chose to hike into the base camp and stay there overnight so as to get a really early start, and beat the heat (and people). We started at about 6:30/7 am and were back down at the car by noon. The most time consuming aspect of the trail is the terrain- a lot of the hike is tallis field, and footing on the scree can be a bit slow-going. Also a good note to any hikers is that there is one VERY convincing false summit, which still got us even though we had read up on it. You have to cross a saddle before you get to the summit of Soapris. Loved the hike overall, so beautiful and was more challenging/enjoyable than some 14ers out there!
