Moose Peak Comments
[ Post a Comment ]
|Would it be do-able to hike the entire crest of Squaw Peak Benchmark Ridge from Bald Mountain to Point 12,960', or would it|
be best to wait until winter and do it on skis, creating less
impact on the fragile alpine ecosystem?
That's one of the most impressive ridges I've seen in the U.S. -
and, Moose Peak is so aptly named.
The only thing your Moose Peak page is lacking is a photograph
of a full-grown adult Bull Moose with a glint in its eyes and
rage in its heart.
Then again, you don't have to go far on SP to find a moose.
Did we ever find out where moose gather during the Winter? Is there a Moose Lodge where the moose are served exotic drinks to
get them prepared for the onslaught of hikers invading their
territory during the summer months?

|Yes, it's doable to hike the whole ridge. I sort of did that but skipped Bald Mountain, having done it a few weeks earlier with my family. I got on the ridge just south of Bald.|
As far as hikers up there impacting the "fragile alpine ecosystem", LOL. I'd love to know how many people made it up there this year. I'm guessing 1.
It would make a great ski trip, but unfortunately, the roads to the trailheads aren't plowed in the winter. Late spring might be possible though.
And yeah, a picture of a moose on the summit would be perfect.

I always just assumed your name was really Maurice Ravel.
