FROM INSIDE MY TENT, I can hear the rain fly flapping in the breeze. But the noise doesn’t stop me from resting after a challenging day spent backpacking to a lonely meadow.
This mountainous amusement park entices adventurers with roller-coaster trails that scale high-altitude passes and dip into quiet, lake-dotted valleys. My dreamlike view includes a wide, jagged-toothed horizon of mountain peaks reflecting off of a glittering glacier-water lake.
Tomorrow will bring an arduous hike over a high pass to reach the state’s (arguably) best alpine rock climbing destination. Whether you’re climbing the looming tower or camping within view, its magnetic appeal draws visitors from all corners of the U.S. Grab your gear and join me.
