Homicide Peak

Adventure beckoned. The summit of Homicide Peak was calling Swift, Tundra, and me. Today was psychologically grueling. It wasn't about the long steep ascent, cold bitter winds, traversing snow gullies, unexpected snow flurries at the summit, or even the name of the peak...it was following continuous bear scat for 4.5 miles uphill through shoulder high vegetation and then having to repeat the daunting task on the return from the summit. Spooky!
