On the final day, we made it up the RMR gondola to about 1700m / 5,500 ft.
This is the first summer in operation with a few hiking trails built. Simon, our girls, and a neighbour went on a short trail to a lookout spot and then together we went exploring in the opposite direction on the cat road.
Under the Stoke chair, that leads to the top in the winter.
It was a refreshing break from the heat at valley bottom, and I love the uniquely alpine smell of the Engelmann spruce and subalpine fir.
