Twining Peak, Colorado

In June 2009, I hiked to the summit of Twining Peak, located on the Continental Divideand approximately 2-3 miles north of Independence Pass. For most climbers, beginning at the parking lot at IndependencePass is the most common route, although I suppose one couldsummit the mountain via one of the many high altitude lakes nearby.

Above is a photo taken near a saddle before the final ascent of the mountain's southern ridge.
