I see an access issue involved with Deseret Peak.
I was there in mid-May last year, and the gate was closed at the national forest boundary.
It will probably be closed again this year. Avalanches and folks getting stuck in the snow at the trailhead.
I guess you'd have to call the Forest Service for current conditions. Best of Luck!
Feel the same as you. I was briefly into the Colorado peaks thing, but found the cold rain in mid-summer disagreeable. The Tetons were beautiful, but just plain cold while I was there. The Sierra are fantastic on so many levels, but can be cold at night (so just descend, I say). It's always great to come back to AZ, or lower elevation. Even where you live, I think is still better than where I currently do. After nearly 5 years here, I have no love for snow (except when I want to see it) and am really looking forward to moving to lower elevation. Really, I think the only good thing about living at high elevation, is being able to exercise at it to acclimate for really high elevation. That just makes our 4000 meter+ peaks not seem as high, though, when already acclimated to 2500 meters.lcarreau wrote:Yeah, that's my point.
I am a "Warm Weather" person, which is obvious from reading my posts.
Of course, I still believe in free choice and to each his/her own, so best of luck whatever your ultimate decision may be ..
