Ruby Peak is a nice hike that offers fantastic views from the summit, and also takes visitors past the spectacular Green Lake. Shorter than climbing Mount Owen, this peak is a great alternative for some, or it can easily be tied in with an Owen climb itself. Not long after returning from a month of travels, I took some time to climb Ruby Peak.

In the mountains, fall is just around the corner. Get out there and enjoy those last days of summer!
