My first 13er  Sucess!

High winds and a big weather front was moving in. Post-holed most of the way up, about 18 inches of snow. Very rewarding. though!! Had plans to traverse to Gibbs and camp but with the storm blowing in, I got down and then outa' town. I here the views are great but with so much cloud cover, didn't get the full affect. But because of the weather, it was interesting up there.

Standard Route  Sucess!

Arrived in Toulumne late Friday night from Chicago. Hiked up Mount Dana Saturday afternoon from the park entrance at Tioga pass on day 1 of a 7 day trip. The wildflowers along the trail were unbelieveable! Perhaps the best I've seen.

Southeast descent  Sucess!

Descended southeasterly to the saddle between Mount Gibbs, but ran short on time so we abandoned 2nd peak bag attempt and followed the drainage West and Northwest cross country to Dana Meadows. Long and satisfying day!

Marmots and grand views  Sucess!

One of the best views in the Sierra! A pleasant hike up from Tioga Pass through the marmots. It always seems to be a first day climb though so coming from sea level you gotta remember to take the aspirin prophylactically!

quake day  Sucess!

Mt Dana was the first 13,000 peak I ever climbed. I had spent the night at one of the campgrounds below the pass and it was a lovely day. I remember when I returned to my truck I felt it shaking a little bit. I thought it strange that it would shake when there was no wind. When I returned to Bishop where I spent the night, all TV channels were full of coverage of the bay area earthquake. I had actually felt it near the summit of Tioga Pass, it was humbling to think of just how much power a quake has, pretty incredible.

One of my personal faves  Sucess!

I've done the trail a few times now and absolutely love it. The wildflowers, the marmots, looking down at the glacial lakes in Dana Canyon. I love the high country.
