McConnell Ridge (Yates Mountain)

Interesting Facts: 

Yate's Mountain is the actual high point at the fire lookout beyond McConnel Ridge which runs in front of it. I've been up here many times and have ascended both summits, but am including them as one peak here.

As Hanneke was in Edmonton for the weekend, we decided to go for a pleasant Sunday afternoon hike with the kids, dog and I. The only place free enough of snow on this gorgeous weekend was McConnell Ridge, so we gave that a try and it worked out beautifully.
