Scrambling up minor cliffbands beyond Forum Lake will bring you to this view of the gentle ridge leading to Forum Peak.The best part of the view from Forum is looking down towards Cameron Lake. Mount Custer is on the right, with Mount Cleveland distant left and Chapman Peak just right of center.Here is a look back at Forum with the summit just out of view on the left.Kintla and Kinnerly Peaks in Glacier National Park, Montana are the main attraction as you head towards Akamina Ridge.I love the variety of colours in the landscape of this area. Long Knife Peak is in the distance.A closer look at Kintla and Kinnerly Peaks with quite dramatic lighting.Rob Laird heads up mauve slopes to the eastern highpoint on Akamina Ridge.I definitely could not get enough of this view down into the United States. Upper Kintla Lake is on the right.The small figure is Rob again this time heading for Akamina's true summit.Here I am a the summit. Long Knife Peak is to my right.Akamina's Outlier looks difficult to reach.Thunderbird Mountain is the pointed peak on the right.Rob really enjoyed this trip. Here he is at the summit.Heading back with Miche Wabun and Kaina Mountain dominating on the right.Agassiz Glacier shines between Mount Peabody and the twin peaks of Kintla and Kinnerly.These environments really can make you feel small.The winds were constant on top of the ridge and Rob demonstrates the force they exerted on us.This shows the ridge we scrambled up earlier in the day. It is not as bad as it looks from this angle.I believe this is petrified sand from an ancient ocean floor.This was a nice diversion on the way back down to our mountain bikes.
