Mt Sneffels summit via the Blue Lakes trail was simultaneously breathtaking and humbling. The trail traverses above tree line on ridges before crossing over Blue Lakes Pass. From there, the class 3 scramble up the southern gully to reach the summit was challenging even before the inclement weather rolled in. We were in a lightning storm and hail storm getting pelted for the entire descent, but the stormy conditions helped create these striking images with amazing lighting.
