Scott WesemannI smell like mountain shrubbery   Sucess!

Climbed Little Water Peak this morning with Matt Van Horn. We started at 5:30 AM and had a nice hike up to the lake, although we did have to avoid human feces on the trail. Who are these people?? From the lake it is a mild bushwhack to the summit and we went through one of the most beautiful aspen forests I have ever seen. It was so green and didn't even seem real. The view from the top is fantastic and Matt had a grand idea that we would just head south and make our way down to the trail coming from Desolation Lake. In theory it sounded great, but it ended up being horrific as we got into thick stinging nettle, shrubs and various other types of bush. Once we were back on the trail we ran back to the trailhead and it was a lot of fun despite the route finding challenges.

Approached from Mill D North, four laps of delicious storm skiing in Shangri-La and northwest face glades, then the visibility started to improve on the peak so we went there for some views and to check out the northeast face, which was probably too windloaded to ski. The winds picked up furiously, knocked down one of us, and gave all three of us a touch of frostbite so we got off the peak and ridge and went to some trees to stick our faces in our coats for a few minutes, then skied the south face.

Nice skiing peak, northwest side has nice powder stashes when things are meager elsewhere, south side is a great line with new snow, northeast side is notorious avalanche path, I'll attach a photo showing one.

02/15/07 With Brent, Lana and Kim. Whiteout conditions along with sub-20 temps and winds gusting to 30 mph made for interesting going.

02/03/07 Blue skies but strong ridge-top winds. We made a loop with various members of the WMC. Mill D North to Dog Lake, Little Water Peak, south along a long ridge line and down to Desolation Lake, then out to the original trail. Thanks to our leader, Mohammed A.

I decided to give Little Water Peak a try after climbing Reynolds Peak. If I had been smart I would have come back later with snowshoes. I sank up to my knees with every step. It took me a while but I made it to the top. I could even see the Uintas Mountains quite clearly. I saw one other hiker on the way out. It did feel a little odd to be hiking alone on such a popular trail.
