Seven Gables


Several peaks jut above the Bear Creek drainage, but the most prominent is Seven Gables with its sculpted cliffs and snow-clad slopes. Below the warm, glowing ridge, a dense pine forest carpets the flowing waves of granite.

Most backpackers tend to camp near lakes and rivers; there’s something hard-wired into our brains that attracts us to the water, probably because we so desperately need it to survive. On the evening captured in this image, I rebelled against that instinct and instead set up camp on the south-facing slopes of Bear Ridge.  A spring gurgled down the hill nearby, so I had plenty of delicious water, and I also had the spot mostly to myself. The high vantage point granted me views of the landscape that are uncommon when camping near a lake, and I enjoyed a wonderful evening sitting out in the evening sun on the ridge, admiring the mountains all around.
