Via the North Loop Trail Date Climbed: May 24, 2006
I did this one along with a couple of friends and my dog. It was a little warm today especially at the section that cuts off cross country from the North Loop Trail. Fortunatly there were still patches of snow here and there...so a little snow under my ball cap melting on top of my head was really refreshing.
I hiked up the North Loop Trail. Right before the Bristlecomb Pine by the turn off to Mummy Springs I turned South to the Saddle of Fletcher (dips down about 150-200 feet), then hiked up to the top of Fletcher Peak. It took me just over 5 hours round trip. I stopped and ate a few times, visited with hikers, and enjoyed the views. GREAT VIEWS from Fletcher. I was the only one up there.
"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."
