On the summit ridge of Watson

The main page of Mt Watson on Summitpost suggests that it'd take a multi-day trip in winter. In fact it took us exactly 7 hours, by the way of Pitt and Page Hill and Blue, Rock, Azure, Tail, and Washington Lakes.

More power to you guys! Getting it done in winter! I'm a spring/summer hiker hunkered down here in the Marin County rain with the van in the shop for the day! Looking foward to getting out to Death Valley vicinity in a few weeks or so.

It might have been technically winter, but it sure felt like spring.

March Death Valley, is it gonna be "flower power" then? :)

By ZeeJay's calculation, following summer roads and trails would add up to 15 miles one way to the summit ... a passably long day on skis. But since we cut almost straight cross-country, it was barely above 10 miles to the summit for us (and more beautiful on the xc route too, with distant views and countless high country lakes).

Did somebody say "flower power," and all the
fragile butterflies that come along with that??

Oh NO!
