Mt. Lincoln

While spending a weekend with John and Helen and other volleyball folks at John's parents cabin near Hoosier Pass, John and I ascended Mt. Lincoln, 14,286 feet. It was a beautiful February day and we needed to gain about three thousand feet on for-the-most-part mild grade south eastern slopes of Mt. Lincoln. This peak is often bagged in summer from the other side together with a few other fourteeners in the area -Mt. Cameron, Mt. Bros, Mt. Democrat. In winter, a lot more solitude can be found that in the busy peak-bagging season and a different aspect of the scenery is revealed too. Two old mine sites are passed along the route - Quartzville and Russia.
