Early Start - Totally devoid of humans  Sucess!

Mammoth Lakes is a beautiful place. The hike is ok. I wish it were remote without ski stuff

Took the lift up  Sucess!

Hate to admit it, but views of the San Joaquin canyon and Mammoth Lakes basin were exceptional. Much better than on a couple "real" hikes I took in the preceding days. Too bad there was substantial smoke blowing in from the Ferguson Fire...

Derping around  Sucess!

Only in the area for a day so took the gondola up and poked around on the summit with some crystal views, then headed off for some scrambling on Deadman Creek dome and took a meander up Convict Canyon before the wind made walking near impossible. Good times!

bush whacking  Sucess!

The trails were closed, so we headed up from the gondola first following ski runs, then bushwhacked up higher on. Great views .

Dragon's Back  Sucess!

After hiking Bodie and Potato earlier in the day, arrived in Mammoth around 5 PM. Since it was too early to head to the motel for the night I hiked Mammoth, going up the Dragon's Back Trail. Very cold and windy on top, saw no other hikers on the entire trail, descended by headlamp.

Feels like Cheating  Sucess!

Ok, I probably shouldn't sign this log since I rode the tram up to the top, but I did have to climb another 15 feet to the top in snow and ice and wind to get to the true summit!

Dragon's Back Trail  Sucess!

Got to the top of this mountain the only reasonable way - on foot. Gondolas are for babies.

With the Family  Sucess!

Took the gondola up with the family (2 and 1 yr. old kids). They made it part way up White Mtn. the day before.

Dragon's Back  Sucess!

Hiked up Dragon's Back, starting from our cabin at Twin Lakes. Excellent views most of the day. It took about 4 hours round trip.

Hiking trail up and down  Sucess!

Certainly a strange mountain experience. Ski lifts crossing the mountain, mountain bikers zipping all over... But the views of the Minnaretts and other peaks are just amazing. Neat, quick jaunt. Summit is nice for lunch.

Ski  Sucess!

Easiest peak I've ever climbed with skis -- or without.


Denjem - Apr 19, 2011 2:56 pm

Not cheating  Sucess!

Rode the Gondola up, and the powder down.

Chair lift  Sucess!

Huffed and puffed from the top of the ski lift to the actual summit marker. What a rush!
