Mt. Langley from Cottonwoods Lakes area. Although this was on the approach, the mountain looked so inconspicious I didn't even notice it on the way in.

View South towards New Army Pass. Siberian Outpost is visible on the right. Once you get a view of it, it's clear enough why it's called that.

Soldier Lake.  I had tried to find a way down to Tuttle Pass from Mt. Langley, but it was steep and exposed and I decided to go down to Soldier Lakes instead.  Here were ducks, dragonflies and no mosquitoes. 

Soldier Lake


The featured article here is my trusted old hat, which blew off the steep Northern side of Mt. Langley. I will miss it.
