Counting hawks at 8,600 feet.

From below, the hike seems daunting. There are many routes up, but today we decide on the long traverse that switchbacks from north to south across Bridger Bowl. Hiking-stick in hand and supplies for another day of hawk-watching on our backs, we start up the two-mile hike, gaining 2,500 feet along the way. After a month, this commute almost seems normal—just the start to another workday on the ridge.
