The westerly view from Emma Burr Mountain is above. We hiked from the region known as Mineral Basin(east side of the mountain and divide) and climbed up the mountain's east ridge. Therewere quite a few "jagged" and rocky spots along that ridge. Facing west, the terrainwas in stark contrats with its gentle slope and high altitude grass and flowers.

Probably the greatest scene on this mountain is to the north. That is me standing on a rocky outcropping with a plethoraof Rocky Mountains peaks way out there. Just behind me, one can easily see the ridge traveling north thatserves as the Continental Divide.
