Queen Mine Trail  Sucess!

Two days after summiting Kings in Utah, Dan and I camped at the Queen Mine. Temperatures in Salt Lake and Tonopah were nearing the century mark, so we left the car/camp before five a.m. to beat the heat, and stashed a quart of water each at Trail Canyon Saddle.
Number 44 of my 49 state high points, and my last SHP above 10,000 feet (I'm ABD -- all but Denali!)

excellent stargazing  Sucess!

This climb taught me the value of gaiters. My legs were so thrashed from the dry brush, and I stayed on the trail. other notes: Before this climb, I'd never experienced such a dry lonely wasteland, Although Boundary Peak affords stargazing which nearly made up for the discomfort.

HP #45  Sucess!

Finally #45 after the third attempt...
Three flight later to Las Vegas from Montreal and they had to loose my lugages on the third try...
Well that didn't prevent me from getting to the top...
I froze sleeping in the car at the TH just with a garbage bag as a sleeping bag... but I was mentally powered to get to the top this time no matter what!!; Finally did... 5 to go!!

Trail Canyon  Sucess!

The scree is awful on the way up, but kinda fun on the way down. Saw wild horses in the meadow that day.

Quick trip down from Sacramento  Sucess!

I was in Sacramento for business and decided to make a run at Boundary before flying out the next evening. The drive in is a little confusing in the dark, and the scree sucks on the way up. The scree is awesome on the down though, and I arrived back at my truck in high spirits!

Queen Mine Route  Sucess!

Hiked this peak with Cori, Anita and some members of the China Lake Mountain Rescue Group. Sugar snow and wet rock made things a little unpleasant above Trail Canyon saddle. It was a real slip and slide while descending. The weather couldn't have been better--sunny and cool with a light wind. The views from the top were mind boggling! There was just enough snow on Montgomery Peak to make things dangerous for a hiker in worn-out approach shoes. We didn't really have enough daylight anyway. Next time.

Queen Mine Trail  Sucess!

Drove the 4Runner to the saddle and hiked from there. There was snow on the peak above Trail Creek Saddle. Beautiful day, but cold with high winds, so we stayed bundled up the entire way. Did this one with my cousin Jack who I climbed Rainier with in July 1967.

High Point  Sucess!

From Queen Canyon. Yosemite was packed on this labor day weekend, but Boundary had no one. I stopped and watched the mustangs for quite awhile though. Beautiful animals, especially in the wild. Got too late to pop over to Montgomery. Maybe next time.

Route Climbed: Queen Mine  Sucess!

The weather didn't look promising, but it held and we were able to make it to the top. Saw the wild horses. They must be pretty used to all the hikers. Unfortunately they only seem to sh*t on the trail.

Screeeeeeh!  Sucess!

Great views of the Sierra from up there. It was pretty cool looking at Mt. Sill from across the owens valley which was our next destination in the days that followed. Thanks for inviting me John.

So much scree  Sucess!

This was my first highpoint! We were at the peak by 10;00am and peaked montgomery also. Lot of fun on TERRIBLE scree!!

Perfect day on Boundary  Sucess!

Car camped at Queen Canyon Saddle and started our hike around 0640. Lots of volunteer trails heading up the north ridge, but they all seemed to end at the same spot. Very little wind and some nice puffy afternoon clouds made for a perfect day on Boundary. Continued over the traverse to Montgomery

Finally!  Sucess!

Took me four tries to make it up this darn peak. I have never seen a mountain with such a nasty weather. Finally summitted after getting an alpine start. TR is on my website.

Queen Canyon Route  Sucess!

Met a couple of local 395 guys that were trying to camp on Montgomery. They got turned around when one guy took an unplanned glissade off the ridge to Montgomery. He arrested himself and his pack with a hiking pole.
