I made my first trip to Elephant’s Perch (and the Sawtooth Mountain Range) with my friend DB. I found the area to be stunningly beautiful, figuring I would share some of the pics here on my blog.

My favorite part of the hike.

DB hanging out at the 2nd belay station on ‘Mountaineer’s Route’.
Me striving to stay warm at the first belay of ‘Astro Elephant’.
DB wishing he had a topo as he couldn’t quite remember where the second pitch started. But, of course, he chose a route and made it look easy.
