This is one of the most stunning peaks in all of the Rocky Mountains. Looking up at Mt. Ida from The Jarvis Lakes reveals an almost perfect pyramid shaped peak with hanging glacier, swept faces and icy ridges. Mt Ida is the N most peak in the Rocky Mountain Chain over 10000'. It is certainly a grand finale!!
