Aka Nameless Ridge down in the Highwood. Nowadays one parks in a lay-by on the left side, 14.2 km south of Highwood Pass, that is also the starting point for No Name (Nameless) Valley and Mist Mountain. Normally we walk the 9 km loop with No Name Valley in the clockwise direction, but for a change decided to do it the other way round on one of the hottest days of the year so far. Ugh! It’s a south-facing ridge and we baked. I am not good in heat and had to stop often, ostensively to take flower pics.
