As Barbara's brother-in-law used to say, this photo shows "the highlight of the frolic": hanging prayer flags at the top of Kachina Peak.
Hike takes about an hour and a half.
Ski down took 5:30 minutes!!
For you numbers'-junkies: hike begins at top of chair 2, elevation is about 10,900 feet. After a steep twenty minute climb through trees to Highline Ridge and a slick traverse on skis across, not down!!, the Kitchen Wall, one hikes and hikes and hikes to reach Kachina's 12,450 foot top.
And for the really sharp-eyed among you— yes,
you do see golf clubs behind those prayer flags!
