Iroquois, Algonquin & Marshall

September, 2012

From left to right are Iroquois, (with the rocky nub known as the “Shepard’s Tooth” on the left slope), the intermediate hump of Boundary Peak, and Algonquin on the right. This is the view from the dam at the south end of the Flowed Lands.



Here we go again...

The last time we were in this area of the high peaks, yours truly failed to summit Iroquois, due to a lack of energy (called a “bonk”), brought on by dehydration and/or lack of eating proper energy food combined with strenuous activity. In addition, we as a group decided to abort the plan to climb Mt. Marshall the next day. In a way, it was a double failure, as far as I was concerned. Of the 4 peaks in the MacIntyre range, I had only summited two of them. So this trip was designed to right that wrong, and make up the peaks I missed the first time.
