A Bit

Took a quick drive up from Reno after work and started the hike from the top of Taylor Street. Not much snow left and a good number of flowers starting to bloom. The views are excellent and the "signatures" from the 1870s on the summit poles & rocks are worth checking out.

I hiked both Mount Davidson and Ophir Hill. First, I hiked up the road under the telephone poles. I went to Ophir Hill first. Then I hiked Mount Davidson. The weather was clear and about 50 degrees. Snow has melted on Ophir Hill, with some snow packs on Davidson, but much has melted. All told, in about 4 miles, I probably walked over 1/4 mile of snow.

Tagged Mt. Davidson along with Ophir Hill. I ascended via the Spanish Ravine to Ophir Hill then along the ridge. A storm from the prior week left several feet of snow which had enough time to consolidate to make the postholing really bad.

Both summits have great views. Mt. Davidson better of Virginia City and Ophir Hill better of Reno and the Washoe Valley.

Easy hike from the water tanks up along Spanish Ravine to the ridgeline, then from there to the summit. Many tracks of wild horses.

This is basically a blaze your own trail situation, great views, good times, no summit can?!? after seeing that there really aren't any trails (they have become quite overgrown), take water & aim for the flagpole.

Parked in the dirt above the road maintenance building complex on the south side of town. Climbed up to water towers and took a right so we could get to the "V" formed with white rocks. Continued north past the "V" and scrambled up the mountain side. The only slightly difficult part was finding the best path through the large loose rocks and snow patches near the top. Took the power-line road (which runs into a dried up creek-bed) for descent, followed by a visit to the Bucket of Blood Saloon.

After a failed attempt at Raymond Peak from Markleeville on Saturday (trickier-than-expected route finding, heinous bushwhacking, and a foot or more of unconsolidated snow--I didn't even get close to my objective before turning around), I retreated to Carson City that evening to lick my wounds. Browsing SP in my cosy, warm motel room, I stumbled across this peak.

It was very cold (18 degrees when I started), but the peak has surprisingly good views--it's well worth a visit. There's better footing on the right (north) side of the SE slopes as you hike up from the NV 341/342 junction.

Afterwards, I drove up to Spooner Summit to snowshoe out to Snow Valley Peak. Fun day.

Uneventful climb from the road below. Interesting flagpole with old "signatures" dating from 1870s.

Climbed again last night on a whim with my little sister to celebrate the semester's end! Full moonlight, great view from Minden to Fallon to Stead, my sandals did not like the steep and sandy 2000' climb.

Climbed up from VC in a circular ridge traverse with my visiting brother one fine winter day. Started from the extreme north end of town and followed snow-lined ridges around to Davidson's west side. The views from this peak are not to be missed!

The steep sandy path to the summit was completely free of snow. Outstanding views from the summit on this clear morning. Next up for the day was Snow Valley Peak with snow and clouds.

Nice day with a clear view from the summit. I wish I knew half the mountains I saw in the distance. Check out my trip report.

Having just gotten into chasing county highpoints less than two months earlier, my wife and I made a trip to the Lake Tahoe area. While there I had a chance to 'sneak' down and

hike up from Virginia City to the summit of Mt. Davidson. My wife was really 'ticked' when she found out that I had gone to Virginia City and hadn't taken her along so she could shop and sightsee while I was going up and down Davidson. Me bad.



The view from up there was awesome and since then I've bought a camera that has the panoramic capability. Its a 360 paradise. Also neat was the pealing of the bells from the Catholic Cathedral down below in Virginia City.
