Mount Huron: Part 3

The summit is cold–freezing cold. We find a place to sit protected from the worst of the biting wind. It truly feels like you’re on top of the world. You can see so far out! We’re grateful for the weather–if it was cloudy, we wouldn’t have the same views. We try to get pictures in between warming up. IMG_2955

Jesse and Anna braved the biting cold and went down the summit aways to carry Dad and Mom's packs up the last stretch.

As we descend, I’m surprised at the steady stream coming up the side of a mountain. It’s like a regular party! Wow! Mount Huron is popular today. We’re spread out on the mountain, some in twos, some by ones, and we enjoy chatting with others as we pass. It’s easy to give encouragement telling them the summit isn’t far. The descent is pretty easy–and the path is great–and the views continue to be stunning. We take an easy pace. Those who reach the little lake first spend time enjoying it.

We head home, and we’re happy to see Anna Marie, Melanie, and the little ones! We’ve missed them. Mount Huron is a great peak to hike. I stand in awe at God’s Creation as I enjoy this special time in the mountains! Joyfully His, Sarah

  1. Hello Maxwell Family. What a fun thing to do! And I have to say this…I believe Mount Huron is the prettiest mountain you have climbed yet! I can’t even imagine it cold right now! FL is hanging on to it’s beloved 90, 95 degree weather. It has not received the memo that it’s Fall;)

    Many Blessings in Jesus to you all!
