I'd hoped to drive the OHV trail, but the gate was closed with a sign saying it was open July 1 to Nov 1. Not that my Ford Explorer would have made it far -- even if the downed trees from the previous winter had been removed, there were big rocks and tricky spots. I hiked the whole thing -- GPS said it was 7.6 miles with 3,660' gain, plus 190' on the return.
Second day of a two day outing to Tehipite Dome and Spanish Mtn. Climbed up the northeast slopes directly from Upper Geraldine Lake- needed to pick my way around near the top due to the snow. Didn't see or hear anyone else the whole trip.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
