Mummy Mountain, Rowe Glacier & Hagues Peak

Mummy Mountain, Rowe Glacier & Hagues Peak

I set out early from the Lawn Lake Trailhead at 6am and made quick work up to the Black Canyon Trail junction. I turned off here and about .2 miles later, turned left and followed some cairns up the grassy tundra of Mummy Mountain. Then I curled around the backside of Mummy & Hagues as I angled toward Rowe Glacier and Rowe Glacier Lake. I came upon two different black bears around 13,000 ft elevation who both ran away from me. One blocked my path up to the Rowes, so I turned back and ascended Hagues Peak. I descended between Hagues & Mummy down some steep talus which gradually gave way to grassy tundra and eventually the trail near the Crystal Lake turnoff. Ran most of the way down from there to make it a 7.5 hour day in the mountains with 18 miles and 6600 ft of gain.
