Awesome Day  Sucess!

One of the greatest days in the mountains I have ever had. From a campsite on the Lake Stream Rd, hiked up with a friend to the TH (snow blocked our passage by car), stashed a few cans of beer in the snow, then proceeded over Holly to Delano, then on the ridge east all the way to Brigham, then back on the trail at the eastern base of the mtns back to the beer stash and then campsite.

Multi Peak Day  Sucess!

Climbed from Griffith Creek. Took 1 hour to reach the summit. Only two more Utah county highpoints to go, Eccentric and Mount Cardwell. Descended the east face of Delano and climbed two additional 300+ prominence peaks (East Delano 12060' and Delano Brigham Ridge Peak 12002'). After climbing those two peaks, I reascended Delano and then traversed over to Mount Holly. Saw plenty of goats on the top of Mount Holly

3rd & 4th County Highpoints of 8 in a day.  Sucess!

Took a little less than an hour to hike the ridge to the right of poison creek to the top and about a half hour to get down including lingering at the top for 10 minutes. Total time about 1 and a half hours.

Delano at night  Sucess!

Hiked near midnight. Followed the main ridge line from the ATV road at the pass above Big John Flats to the northwest, by headlamp and GPS. Made for an interesting ascent. The starlit sky from the summit was shocking, with no moon and no points on the horizon higher than the summit we were on within view. We felt as though we were among the stars.

Windy  Sucess!

Hiked Delano on my way down to attempt Signal Peak for a second time. Beautiful views, but a bit cold in the wind.

I want to get back down here and hit all the other Tushar 12,000 ft peaks.

Delano Peak  Sucess!

Via Poison Creek. Surprisingly beautiful. 70 mph sustained winds on summit. Wildland fire very evident. Found Clovis point.

Big John Flat  Sucess!

I hiked up Delano Peak, East Delano Peak, and Delano-Brigham Ridge Peak starting from Big John Flat. The road was closed at the campground 3 miles up the road, so we walked about 2 miles on the road before heading up the ridge.

Road trip  Sucess!

Took my son on a 3 county high point road trip. This was the last peak of the trip. We started at poison creak and followed it up to the peak. We seen a heard of goats on the way up (I don’t think we would of seen them if my boy didn’t spot them). Hit the peak and played in the snow.

North Ridge  Sucess!

There were a lot of hunters at Big John Flat so we decided to drive a little farther away. We followed the north ridge to Delano Peak. Saw and took photos of a herd of over fifty mountain goats along the way. It was a very windy day. The mailbox was in bad shape and will probably be carried away by the wind one of these days.

From Big John Flat (plus two other 12ers)  Sucess!

#1 8-8-15 w/ ZeeJay on one of the windiest days I've ever experienced. Managed to top out on East Delano and Delano Brigham Ridge Peak also. #2 6-13-15 Solo. Lower gate on FS road 123 locked. Wanted to get Mt. Belknap but had to change plans to something more reasonable from the locked gate at 8,950'. Delano was "what the mountain and UDOT would give me." :) IVD. Also need to mention that I accidentally left a small tripod on the summit. It sure would be nice to have it back. Please let me know if you have found it. Thanks.

Electricity  Sucess!

Amazing area. It was wet and muddy and there were big gray coulds all around us. You could see where all the animals had been tromping in the meadows. It felt like a huge grassy hill on top. When we were on top, Greg looked at me and said, "Um, your hair is standing straight up." We ran as fast as we could off the top.

Poison Creek  Sucess!

We made the summit in between monsoon showers. Clouds parted briefly to allow views of Belknap. It is a beautiful area.

Big John Flat  Sucess!

My daughters first big mountain climb. We loved seeing all the mountain goats. I have never seen so many and so close. Great climb and awesome views.

Big John Flat  Sucess!

Camped at Big John Flat, walked up the road for about a mile (was still closed past the camping area) and started walking up the ridge. What a beautiful and undiscovered area. After summiting, spent some time exploring the gorgeous meadows and saw a ton of mountain goats.

Goats  Sucess!

Scared 3 goats within 10 yards after cresting the summit. Followed them trying to get a good picture and saw another 38 grazing on the saddle just to the east of the summit. They backed off a bit at first, but when they realized I wasn't going to chase them they just grazed and let me watch for my summit break.
