Via Pinnacles Trail  Sucess!

While driving my two youngest children to Thanksgiving in California, we stopped off at Big Bend. My daughter did well on this one even though it was evident on her face that this wasn't what she really wanted to do. But there is always joy in making it to the top no matter what your mood is.

Perfect Weather  Sucess!

Great weather, camped at Juniper Flats and then up to Emory and around to the South Rim. Watched a couple lizzards up at the summit. I think they were annoyed that I interupted their lunch while I ate mine. Would love to know about the rusty bolts that were drilled into the rock and if anyone has used them lately.

Great View  Sucess!

Hiked with a couple of friends on a beautiful afternoon. Great views of the entire Big Bend region from the top. Up and down in 4.5 hours from the Basin.

Great Hike  Sucess!

It was a beautiful day in Big Bend. 75 deg with a slight breeze. The trail on this mountain is good and very well marked. The final rocky section is not hard but has some good exposure. Great summit though the weather station is probably not necessary. We celebrated the hike with a few beers in the hot springs. Don't miss them!

fun hike  Sucess!

With James Brown. My first real "summit," I think. We had a great 3 day backpacking trip in the Chisos mountains, and really enjoyed the summit scramble.

From Juniper Canyon  Sucess!

We camped near Juniper Canyon with a large group of family and hiked a ways up the canyon the next day. Most folks turned around, but I continued a couple more miles to the peak. Great views of a very cool part of our country!

Via trail  Sucess!

Loop hike with Nga around to the South Rim and back to the visitor center, tagging Toll Mtn and Emory Peak along the way. Nice views from the summit (despite the antennas, ugh).

Long Loop Highlight  Sucess!

Did a day hike loop: Laguna to South Rim to North Rim to Pinnacles, and added this peak since I was going back home to flat Illinois. Very icy and slick, especially going down. I volunteer to take down the antennas from the summit at a reasonable rate.
