I'm planning a trip for this coming summer--late July 2008. Lately, I've become interested in hiking at high altitudes, mostly due to photos and stories I've read in these forums.
I've never done this type of hiking before--just a high pass here and there on the way to other destinations.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a trip in which I could do much of my hiking above tree-line, along high ridges and so forth? I would be traveling ultralight and technical climbing (ropes, etc) would not be an option. The trip would last about a week, depending on itinerary.
Any place in the rockies would be good, but ideal if within 5 to 6 hours of Salt Lake.
As always, thanks for your helpful comments,
