The Other Side of Black Mountain

I suppose some of you have wondered what is on the other side of Lenawee and Black Mountains. Beyond that ridge line is a North to South running stream known as Chihuahua Creek. Chihuahua runs into Peru Creek which runs into the Snake River which runs into Lake Dillon (formerly the Blue River before the dam was built). Bounded by Lenawee and Black Mountains on its West Side, Chihuahua Creek is bounded by two 14'ers, Grays and Torreys Peaks on its East Side. At the head of the creek on the West side is Chihuahua Lake. This photo was taken during a snow squall at the lake this past Monday.

I started out for Chihuahua lake yesterday. We turned around probably about the time this photo was taken.

a couple of weekends ago I traversed from Lenawee lift to Black Mountain. It was blue, bright and clear. I could see the bottom of it. Absolutely astounding. It looked like a cold weather tahiti.

there were some spots that looked like drop in points but that side seemed like prime avy terrain.
