Ascent Trip Report

Drove to the trailhead from Rupert up Fish Creek Road arriving a little after 11:00 a.m. Headed up trail to Independence Lakes. Upon reaching saddle between Mount Independence and Cache Peak, we cross country routed until finding blue ribbons leading to the summit. Arrived about 1:30 p.m. to a magnificent vista, particularly views to the south of Castle Rocks and City of Rocks. Had lunch, a glass of wine and then headed back to the Jeeps as storm clouds began to build from the west. An hour and fifteen minutes had us back to the trail head.
