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.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
