The J.R. tank on the other side of the highway from the Queen Mine Canyon road.
Queen Canyon Mine Road. Boundary and Montgomery are the two snow covered high points in the upper right.

Courtney on the ridge between Boundary and Montgomery
Looking back at Boundary Peak from a smooth spot on the ridge
Closer view of Montgomery Peak's summit. Looks very impressive from this perspective.
Mark, Courtney, and Luba on the ridge to Montgomery
The ridge gets more interesting the closer you get to Montgomery
Luba decides we need some exposure so we follow her up to the right
Looking south toward "The Jumpoff" and White Mountain Peak (rear)
Courtney, Luba, and Mark on the summit of Montgomery Peak. White Mountain is visible just left of middle rear. 8:35am.
Middle Creek Canyon (the typical starting point for climbing Mount Dubois)
Luba, Courtney, Mark, and Mike on the summit of Montgomery Peak. Five of seven reach both peaks.
Not the first up this year, but not far from it.
Great parting shot of Montgomery Peak's summit block
Luba displays her skills and opts for a standing glissade
After a nice glissade we head for Trail Canyon Saddle
Looking back at the glissade slope we used (to the right of the trail when looking up from Trail Canyon Saddle)
Mark and Luba take a break at Trail Canyon Saddle
We regroup at Trail Canyon Saddle: Luba, Tara, Courtney, Mark, Susan, and Mike.
Luba shoots of photo of me (blue shirt standing) and the group
Some avalanche remnants in the bowl North of Boundary's East ridge
Small pond visible in the lower part of Trail Canyon
Queen Mine (left), Kennedy Point (upper right), and the saddle/trailhead (middle right)
Looking down at the saddle/trailhead below Kennedy Point
Ample parking at the Kennedy Point saddle. 2wd low clearance vehicles need to park at the Queen Mine parking spot a mile below.
Some bizarre experiment at the Queen Mine parking area.
Entrance to the Queen Mine (or one of a number of mines in the vicinity)
There is a cave-in blocking the tunnel a short distance into the mine
Queen Mine parking spot. Also not a bad spot to camp. We car camped here the night before the hike.
Mining cabins in the vicinity of the Albert Mine
