There is nothing desolate about this peak or the long and winding lakeside trail leading to it. Au contraire mon frère (et ma soeur)! Desolation is alive with color—shrouded in dazzling alpine fl owers during the summer bloom. And the view? C’est magnifi que! Stand mouth agape, staring down at the cobalt waters of fjord-like Ross Lake cradled beneath glacier- covered peaks. It was inspirational to Franco-American poet Jack Kerouac and no doubt will be for you as well.
