via Lee Canyon Ski Area  Sucess!

With Brent. Fun outing. Approaching from Lee Canyon sure beats the round-about lengthy trail. We had perfect weather, though it was a little hazy which subdued the views a little. NV county highpoint #6!

First of an attempted triple.  Sucess!

Did the US Bank stair race on Friday, drove to the trailhead Saturday, woke up and tagged it. Weather was ideal, pack was perfect, few people on the trail and thought my route was shorter than it was. Easy but long. GO!!!

With Griffith via South Loop  Sucess!

A big front moved in that evening, so I counted my lucky stars that it was a blue-sky day. Incredible views to Whitney, 145 miles away!

The long approach sure makes one feel the altitude near the summit... made it a leisurely 11.5 hours roundtrip.

From Trail Canyon  Sucess!

and back the same way, w/ Maddie. It was a beast of a day, but the weather was nice and the view was clear. I'll never forget the slow moving, step at a time switchbacks toward the top of the southeast face. Great trail work!

Spring Mountain Tour  Sucess!

Summited today as part of a 30-mile trail run tour of the Spring mountains. Super windy and very cold up the South loop near the Summit. No Snow or Ice. Really had perfect conditions all day (summit chill not withstanding). What a great mountain range. I need to get back and explore some more!

Boom  Sucess!

Thunderstorms predicted at 20% after eleven. So at 11:01 the booming started, then the rain, then the hail. Surprising, but I had the mountain to myself for a change.

North loop trail  Sucess!

Took five hours and five minutes up and one hour less than that down. The weather was iffy and snow squalls and cold rain hit just after I got back to the tree line, making much of the 10.3 mile descent back to the car seem longer than the ascent. This was a very well set up trail however and whoever planned it out was a genius.

Trail Canyon/North Loop Trail  Sucess!

#1 10-7-16 Solo. Beautiful cool fall day. Almost no wind on top. Had the summit and all of the paraphernalia to myself. The artistry of the bristlecone trees is fabulous. Inadvertently left a Nalgene on top but a couple heading up said they would make good use of it, so that's the main thing! I camped near the Trail Canyon TH and it worked out fine. Shortly after leaving the TH at 6:30 a small herd of deer appeared suddenly along the trail and seemed not to worry about me hiking past them.

North Loop Trail Run  Sucess!

Ran/speed hiked the North Loop route from Trail Canyon, roundtrip was 16.4 miles and 5,000 vertical. Total time was 3:29. This is an INCREDIBLE trail, so beautiful. I was blown away. Had the summit to myself.

Too Much Snow

Beautiful weather and very clear skies. No problems for the first 6 miles up the North Loop Trail (we started from Trail Canyon Trailhead). The South Loop was officially closed, as indicated at the Trail Canyon Trailhead. Then we hit snow- it was on again off again for the next mile or so. We had snowshoes, but it was still pretty slippery, as the snow was drifted diagonally over the trailing. The going was slow. About a half mile from the summit, right at the switchbacks, we encountered much more snow in the chute. We didn't feel comfortable continuing and turned around.

Late start (11:30), but beautiful hike and perfect weather. The color change is near peak - vibrant yellows and oranges.

North Loop  Sucess!

Delightful hike starting at Trail Canyon. Spend the night at the trailhead and got an early start. At least 25 people summited by my count. A lovely sunny day with little wind up top.

The airy traverse along the cliffside after Devil's Thumb is quite something : a masterful piece of trail building .

Devil's Thumb  Sucess!

Best part of the mountain! Fun easy scramble up Devil's Thumb then a stiff walk to summit. Warm day with too many people on the trail.....next stop Mummy. Couldn't do Griffith due to fire damage closure and endangered butterfly.

Via Devil's Thumb route  Sucess!

Climbed with Mummy. Found small patches of snow on the descent off Charleston, which we stuffed our water bottles with, stuffed down our shirts, in our hats, and all around our neck. Was good relief from the heat. Devil's thumb scramble was short and sweet but very FUN!
