Climbed again last night on a whim with my little sister to celebrate the semester's end! Full moonlight, great view from Minden to Fallon to Stead, my sandals did not like the steep and sandy 2000' climb.
Climbed up from VC in a circular ridge traverse with my visiting brother one fine winter day. Started from the extreme north end of town and followed snow-lined ridges around to Davidson's west side. The views from this peak are not to be missed!
The steep sandy path to the summit was completely free of snow. Outstanding views from the summit on this clear morning. Next up for the day was Snow Valley Peak with snow and clouds.
This is a nice early morning hike. Beautiful views.
Nice day with a clear view from the summit. I wish I knew half the mountains I saw in the distance. Check out my trip report.
Having just gotten into chasing county highpoints less than two months earlier, my wife and I made a trip to the Lake Tahoe area. While there I had a chance to 'sneak' down and
hike up from Virginia City to the summit of Mt. Davidson. My wife was really 'ticked' when she found out that I had gone to Virginia City and hadn't taken her along so she could shop and sightsee while I was going up and down Davidson. Me bad.
The view from up there was awesome and since then I've bought a camera that has the panoramic capability. Its a 360 paradise. Also neat was the pealing of the bells from the Catholic Cathedral down below in Virginia City.
