Forget Me Not

Forget-me-not Mountain rises to an elevation of 12,115 feet, making it one of Montana’s ranked twelve-thousand foot peaks.   Pictured in the featured image in the right-center, it appears as a precipitous cliff dropping sharply into the Black Canyon drainage, deeming its alternative designation as “Drop-off Mountain” on some maps appropriate.

I accessed the summit via a permanent snowfield at the upper end of Glacier Lake.  In an exhausting sixteen hour day trip, I was able to capture a series of striking photos from the rugged lake shore, a surly mountain goat, and alpine views of the incredible Black Canyon, making for a truly unforgettable day on Forget-me-not Mountain.
