Serenity at Saddle|
View south of Icehouse Saddle - On a fair-weather weekend, the saddle sees lots of foot traffic. On this Friday morning we experienced a few minutes of solitude at the saddle before a party of three arrived an older man, his adult son, and an infant on his back. Earlier on our way up, our wilderness experience was interrupted by the cries of the toddler a few minutes behind us.
Evidently this parent didn't bother to heed the first paragraph of the Wilderness sign: "Solitude - Respect the solitude of others. Use low voices."
