This was a straight forward ascent from Sand mtn. From Sand, across the saddle to the north and zig-zagged up the south slope of E. Meaden Peak. Very nice views of Sand mtn and the surrounding area. These peaks are great intro mountain climbing.
After climbing Sand Mountain, Kim, Shaylee and Kessler headed back down while I followed Sand Mountain’s north ridge before dropping down to the saddle and then climbing Meaden Peak East. The original plan was to have Kessler come with me for Meaden Peak East, but he wanted to stay with his little sister (Shaylee), so I did the climb alone before meeting back with them at the trailhead. Great day; great weather.
"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night, in the dusty recesses of their minds, awake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes to make it reality."
