This mountain is called Squaw's Tit, and that was pretty much the reason why we wanted to go hikeā€¦lol. What a politically incorrect name it is. However hike started out horribly wrong. We couldn't find the trailhead due to there are million trails that locals created and flooded creeks washing away trails didn't help. So we were forced to bushwhack for a while. This lady needs shaving at the bottom.

I believe there must have been a forest fire near by. Such a smoky day and dark smoke was coming from mountains.

After getting lost and walking back and forth the same way, we decided to just take a drainage and hoping that it will take us close to tree line.

Instead, the drainage suddenly closed and we were force to scramble up.

Good thing I was hiking with Kevin, otherwise if I was hiking with inexperienced hikers this could have been the end of the road.

Scary part. Unlike screes, if you slip, you will keep go down and nothing to slow you down here.

Finally we find the trail but it wasn't much of a trail. From here it was constant scrambles until the tit.

Right at the bottom of the tit. It looks much bigger than looking from the bottom of the mountain. I guess she got excited.

While I was being an idiot, Kevin managed to stay cool.

Assiniboine again you might say, but I can't help. It's my favorite mountain.

On the way back, the heat melted snow and making creek to flood.
