Cardinal Divide Ridge

On Sunday we woke up with less energy and ambition for another mountain, but we didn't want to go home neither. Therefore this ridge came into mind. It's not a very low bump, but because we started at Cardinal Divide, which already has elevation of 2000m, the elevation gain is just about 200m to the summit. There's even a quad trail leading us to the top of the ridge, then it's a pleasant ridge walk to the summit. We used 1 hour to reach the summit. It's funny that the highest point is even treed. Fortunately we got a snow scoop which was about 3m high. Standing on that thing we could get better views. Towards west is the impressive face of the first range of front range, including Ruby Mountain, Mt Russell, Mt MacKenzie, Mt Cardinal, Tripoli Mountain, and Cheviot Mountain.
