Went with Adam Helman and Edward Earl to celebrate Edward's 58th and final California County.

Edit: Later discovered not to the the Placer County HP. Oh well. It still counts as a great climb.

Nice hike. About 6 inches of relatively snow above 8500 feet. Summit register books appeared to be completely full.

Beautiful day. Not a cloud in the sky. Tinker Knob and Granite Chief in the same day.

This was a very senic hike and a good workout. My dog(Ginger) and I made it to the summit in 21/2 hours. The flys at the summit where very aggressive and I got biten more than once.

Lots of "going direct" because there's too many freakish trails in this area. Still major snow on the front side of the peak, I climbed combination class 3 rock and semi-steep snow slopes to the top of the Squaw ski lift and then traversed the ridge to the summit.

After climbing Tinker Knob a few weeks before, Bob and I came back for some unfinished business. Squaw Valley is a surprisingly pretty area, much more alpine-looking than much of the Tahoe region.

Hiked up Granite Chief via the main trail. I then went on to bag Needle and Lyons peaks and returned via the Western States Trail and down into Squaw Valley via some maintainance roads.

Nice fun hike with good milage. Did this as a tune up hike for my upcoming Whitney/Muir/Russel threesome in a week. Beautiful weather and decent views on the hike up. Left the parking lot at 10 a.m. and was on the summit at 12:30 p.m. after chatting with a few people on the way up. Back down by 3 p.m. after a half hour on the summit enjoying the views and reflecting on the date. Then off to Castle peak.

Matthew and I had an enjoyable outing on snowshoes climbing out of Olympic Village. The traverse out to Needle and Lyon peaks was equally fun. Trip Report

This was summit number two on this beautiful May day for fellow SP'er Dennis Poulin and myself, with the first one being Thunder Mtn near Kirkwood. What a contrast from the day before when winds and snow almost blew us off the summit of Mt. Rose. Great viewpoint. We walked back through the ski area and down the 5 or 6 miles of road that is under the lifts to where we parked our vehicles

Hiked this with my friend Joel. It was my 16th California County High Point. The views are great and it makes for an enjoyable day. Met two pairs of through hikers along the PCT, one offered us a lift pass given her by an earlier hiker. Found a good Chinese restaurant in Truckee in the shopping center near the junction of I-80 and SR-89.
