My wife and I were in Carlsbad, NM last week to visit the Carlsbad Caverns when she told me that she wanted to climb Guadalupe Peak in Texas. ( I had climbed it about 4 years ago.) We climbed it and reached the summit. It was my wife's 32nd state highpoint. It was a beautiful day and we only met about 8 people on the trail. Here are some pictures of our climb:

Pretty light schedule this year: Mauna Kea at the end of April, then Hood in late May / early June. Any other trips will involve more vertical pursuits.

[quote="Florida Frank"]I think my highpoint repeats are Katahdin (14), Marcy (5), Washington (4), High Point NJ (3), Mansfield (2), Mitchell (2), Clingman's Dome (2). Of course that doesn't count the number of times I've driven by the Ebright Azimuth on my way to the Farmer's Market. :-)

Nice to hear about your adventure to Guadalupe. We have plans to go in early November with some old college outing club friends. I'm told Carlsbad is a "must do" so we'll spend a day there as well.

Hey zodis -

CT and MA will be no issue. Snow should be long gone by then. I am north of Albany and the last of the snow down here in the valley melted off last weekend. For the most part, it was a low snow year in the Northeast but March got cold will several storms including a couple of whoppers in the mountains. Depending on what time of May you head up this way will dictate how much is left. Regardless, it won't be enough to stop you but could slow you down a bit.

For trail condtions updates, your best bet is probably this site:

Hope you have a great trip!

Alex, great running into you on the trail yesterday. Good luck with your Hood and Rainier adventures. Catamount is planning on Hood in May as well. Maybe you can climb together?

Please give yourself enough recovery time between Hood and Rainier. Rainier is a serious mountain that demands respect from all of us. You will maximize your probability of success and your safety with at least a couple of days of rest between the two and starting on fresh legs!

I'll look into whether we might rendesvous with Nate for a Kings Peak climb in early August.

I am planning on making my 30th ascent of Mt Borah this summer. I was going to quit after 25 but I kept getting asked by friends to take them up so what the heck? Borah is only 4 hours away from my home and it has always been kind of a test piece as to my fitness level so I'll get to see how it feels at 60 this year.

I think Alex is going to be there a little before me. I wish him the best of luck!

Frank, what a small world! Great to meet your wife as well! I have already arranged all the logistics (to save $ and minimize vacation time) so I will only have 24 hours to recover after Hood, I did sign up with the Timberline Guides so hopefully I'll save some energy.

I'm looking forward to the Great Lakes highpoints this summer with the family. In August we're hiking Eagle Mtn., Mt. Arvon, and Timms Hill!
