My second attempt at Nelson. Drove up Bates Canyon to the gate. The road is extremely nasty with large ruts, steep grades, and big boulders. At the gate (5300') climbed the spur ridge to the north sub peak. Traversed south to Nelson Peak. Snow conditions were miserable with significant bush wacking. Views were astounding. Trip info was 7.4 miles RT with 4900 feet elevation gain
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
