Trip Report

At this point on a gorgeous spring day on May 19, 2018, Wietse and I were already over 6 hours into our day and a LONG way from our vehicle. As we descended the easy, snowy NW ridge of Boundary Peak towards Midday Peak, we also met other people for the first time that day. A gaggle of trail runners with their ridiculously light packs and physically fit bods ran / walked past us as we exchanged brief greetings and assured them that Porcupine Ridge was easy and fun.
