Hiked to the summit of Middle Truchas via NW Ridge route from Rio Quemado TH. Third summit since year 2000. Continued onto "Medio" and South Truchas Peaks. Returned via Northeast Ridge of "Medio" Truchas. Beautiful weather, nice hike, -- great day in Pecos!
Were able to drive to the trailhead & entered through Quemado Falls with much thrashing. It was actually mentioned that snowshoes would have been preferable to continually putting skis on and off. Finally could relaxe & skin continuously once we reached the basin.
Crampons would have been comforting. Climbed the main chute in a whiteout & had a fantastic powder run. 10 hour round trip for 10 minutes of skiing, but definitley the best easter ever!
"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."
