Inspiring Engagement   Sucess!

On my first visit to Joshua Tree, I knew I wanted to see the view over the lip down to Palm Springs. Being a crowded NP free day, we decided to hike up the hill to leave the crowd behind. When we reached the summit, we found a rock with an arrow fashioned out of copper wire placed on top of the summit. While Alicia was taking a sunset picture of the art piece left behind, I placed her grandmother's engagement ring on the arrow. Needless to say, I'll never forget this hike!

Watch for the Snakes  Sucess!

Started early at 6:15am from Keys view to beat the heat and it was quite pleasant. The area was absolutely deserted except for the big snake i almost stepped on. Very nice views of the coachella valley and San Jacinto. Even at a moderate pace only took about 1.5 hours roundtrip. Register is still there, but not too many summer visitors have signed.

Nice Family Hike

Hiked up with my wife and daughter (on my back) and mgeo and his wife. Nice hike, beautiful weather and great views. After multiple false summits we found the highpoint along with USGS marker and register.

A decent Peak Ascent  Sucess!

Took a break from climbing in JT and drove out to bag this peak as part of my quest to get 25 of the hundred peaks hikes done this year. The log books going back to 1985 were an extra treat.
