Posting some old photos of a trip up to the Icicle Ridge LO site.

Snow up high, flowers down low.

Hiked up via the Fourth of July trail to the ridge and then left, west, to the former LO site.

More info on the lookout: This former LO was established as a camp in 1914, replaced with a D-6 cupola in 1929 but was then destroyed by a fire in 1966.
