 Sniktau and Cupid from Loveland Pass     

My full trip report with GPX track, photo slideshow, and YouTube videos is on my own blog. I put a lot of time putting it together there so I apologize for linking you, but it was too much work to do that in both places. I have at least uploaded a few teaser photos here.

I didn't get a photo of the cairn, but there is an obvious cairn marking the trail over to Cupid. This photo shows that trail.

This photo is looking back from the previous photo. There was a minor snowpatch behind for us to traverse on the way to Cupid.

On the summit of Cupid. Its like Bross only with more grass and marmots.

Beautiful views from Cupid
