This has it's own thread but it make sense to post it here as well. Mount Konocti trails now open to the public

greetings folks!

....A report / heads up for climbers (scramblers?, baggers? haha) of the santa rosa mountains.....

I went up to the Coolidge Benchmark on Sunday just east of desert shores......attained the North Saddle at 600ft. only a mile from the 86 expressway and bam! 7 bighorn sheep right there.....4 big bucks, a young buck and 2 does. Peakbagger.com lists this as a 4/10 coolness rating but the bighorns deserve a 10 I think.

I've just completed a major update to the Shastina page, and wanted to thank Misha for giving me the chance to do it. Happy to have my first Cascade Peak.

I am especially pleased with the new geology section. Worth a read IMHO...

I know this thread is not used too often but with two new Trinity Alps peak pages up in a week I can't resist.

Mrchad9 posted a great page on one the best peaks in northern California:

Caesar Peak

Image

Also, I posted a page on Billys Peak, an unknown but awesome peak.

Image

I also posted a route page for the Stoddard Lake Trail, the route that leads to the summit of Billys Peak:

Just completed a major revamp of the Simmons Peak page. A nice peak in the Cathedral Range in Yosemite. Spectacular scenery en route and almost guaranteed solitude if you overnight it.

I've scrambled up some interesting peaks and formations in the Golden Canyon area of Death Valley, but don't think I've been up here yet:

I will lower myself down to Chad's level for this one post, since he's fine with highjacking the "What's New in Alaska & Canada" thread, I will do the same.

Conservatives and rednecks (is that redundant?)


Is ignorant and Liberal redundant?

LOL. This is the first time you've come to my level? Welcome back.

Actually liberal and ignorant is not redundant, it's a contradiction in most cases. Note how conservative rednecks are always spewing about liberal college professors and the liberal media.

Now carry on telling women how the goverment should manage their reproductive health options.

I just did a revamp of the page for Eagle Peak, near the Courtright Reservoir. My family has a cabin at the lake, so I am starting to tool around with some pages down in that neck of the woods.

Added two peaks on the CA-NV border - just inside CA - Verdi Peak and Ladybug Peak. Easily accessible from Stampede Reservoir east of Truckee: http://www.summitpost.org/verdi-peak-an ... eak/810983

I posted routes to two of Mount Shasta's waterfalls. These routes, particularly the Brewer Creek Trail connect to popular routes to the mountain's summit but both are good (Whitney Falls) to great (Brewer Creek) hikes on their own.

The Brewer Creek Trail to Ash Creek Falls:

The Whitney Falls Trail leads to Whitney Falls:

Another trail on Mount Shasta, the Green Butte Ridge Trail

Two more trails to post and then I think my little project will be complete.
