13ers Epaulet, Epaulie, and Rosalie 8/22/15

No official trail. We parked at Summit Lake and round trip trail length was about 6.5 miles. Mount Evans Wilderness. (1.5 hours / 55 miles from Denver)

Found a sheltered area away from the wind:

Looking southwest from Epaulie

Looking southwest on the saddle between Epaulie and Rosalie. There was smoke blowing in from the wildfires out west.

Looking southwest

The cairn on top of Rosalie was a welcome sight. Mid-image you can see Epaulie and Epaulet. In the far back you can see the road winding up Mt. Evans (on the right) and Mt. Bierstadt to the left.
