A week in the Desert  Sucess!

I spent 3 days hiking with Heather and then she went off to do 100+ miles on the PCT. I then spent 4 days bagging peaks solo. I made it to the top of Mastadon around 6:40am and it was nice to have the trail to myself. I then continued on across the valley to climb Eagle (my 100th USA P2k). Other things I climbed on this trip include the Kingston, Kelso Dunes highpoint, East Ord, Cady, Chemehuevi.

Fun for the whole family  Sucess!

Took the kids and grandpa up this little jewel. Incredible wildflowers and wildlife. Completely different from the rest of the park i.e. Hidden Valley and environs. I saw my first desert tortoise here, as well as several chuckwallas. Great to make a look hike out of it.

Nice diversion  Sucess!

Part of a day off from rock climbing. Took a tour of the southern part of the park, including this little gem. Good nature trail loop with lots of interpretive signs, and a very short, nice scramble to the top. Excellent and unique view of the San Jacento, the Santa Rosas, and the Salton Sea.
