Awesome adventure with Splattski. A definite wilderness experience, rugged and remote. Added in a bunch of lesser peaks along the way, for a total of almost 40 miles hiked in our three day trip. Trip Report
Following the Big Baldy ridgeline through miles of burnt forest made this one a hard earned prize. Thank goodness for Buck Lake which seemed like an oasis in the middle of the vast destruction that the somewhat recent fires. My companion was SP member Dennis Poulin and we were both happy to have this one under our belt when we finally got back to our vehicle at the TH but yet, it was a great adventure at the same time. Big Baldy is very unique and will always remain a special summit. This is not one I'd want to do solo and I really appreciated having Dennis on this one.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
