After work, I set off to climb Mount Argentine. I wanted to reach the summit by sunset, but I was too late. I still had some views in the fading daylight though. After reaching the summit, I headed down the east ridge as described on Summitpost for the loop hike. I thought that I must have missed a turn in the fading daylight, since the trail started heading north, so I went cross country to the south through the trees until I hit the jeep road. It was dark by then so hiked the jeep road back in the dark. It was a nice hike.
Via Mount Argentine Loop Date Climbed: May 24, 2009
The weather this Memorial Day weekend was quite temperamental. Due to weather factors, we opted for Mount Argentine instead of heading into the high country. While the trailhead was difficult to locate, the views from the summit of this pleasant 11er did not dissapoint. Partner: Deb.
