Summer Lovin’: Vestal Peak’s Wham Ridge

We hiked across the stream and set up camp for the night at the Onion Field trailhead. The next day, we had absolutely fabulous weather for the hike to Camp 1, and only a few instances where we could not find the trail because of snow.

Needless to say, I was stoked for everything beyond.
