October 4th, 2011: Golden Staircase

For many hikers ascending the Tiger Mountain West Summit #3 trail it’s a relief to reach the Golden Staircase. It marks the near end of a 2 1/2 mile trek climbing  2100 feet in elevation. Actually the view from here is more interesting than that of the summit itself.
