Just a few images I took from an impromptu hike to the highest point of the Henry Mountains. Mt. Ellen at 11,522 ft., which everyone can see from Canyonlands and all points around, but are never sure what it is... Credit to Wikipedia = "Mount Ellen is an ultra-prominent peak, meaning that it has more than 1,500 metres (4,921 ft) of topographic prominence, standing out considerably from nearby mountains." It's named after the sister of John Wesley Powell. Not really a difficult climb, it does take some doing to get to the trail head. The interesting rise dead ahead is a false peak.. Sweeping view of the ridge line. Great light, it was enhanced by some major fires. Bull Mountain off in the distance. The summit. Mid August night with miles to go before I sleep.
