About time this peak got a post.
Thank you sir! Absolutely appreciated coming from the top quality contributor in the area. Thanks Bubba!
Great pics. Good job!
Thanks so much Noondueler. I really enjoyed the forest there... a bit unexpected. After last summer I had forgotten how nice some areas outside the Sierra are. I'd like to do more there in the future.
Nice to see this one on summitpost, but a couple of things. First the Trinity Alps are located in northwestern California, and not northeastern as you say in the first paragraph. Also, in the red tape section, it might be worth pointing out that campfires are prohibited at all of the lakes in the Canyon Creek and Stuart Fork drainages.
Thanks for the comment and also the correction. Ever since I moved to California years ago I have occasionally gotten east and west mixed up... still happening I guess. I also made the additions. Thanks!
Looks like a very interesting peak in a beautiful area. I truely regret that I haven't visited the Trinity Alps... yet! Nice work and great images, mrchad.
Thanks boyblue! I absolutely recommend a visit sometime. I'd forgotten how scenic they were. After a couple of years almost solely in the Sierra and CA deserts it was refreshing to see the differences in the forest flora.
Grizzly Lake and Thompson Peak were on my list last summer, but due to family requests, I didn't end up driving over to China Gulch TH after hiking up to Caribou Mountain from Big Flat. Your page has my eyes set on Caeser Peak next summer.
Thanks so much Sean! Both peaks are definitely worth it. A very nice area and underutilized from the north.
