Main Trail  Sucess!

Nice fall hike up the trail with lovely fall colors. We didn't see anyone on the way up but as we were descending we ran into a class of 50 sixth graders on a school outing.

Glen Alpine -> Gilmore Lake Trail  Sucess!


I think it would have made a whole lot difference (like even better) to go up there around sunset or sunrise instead of mid-day though.

We had lunch somewhere between/behind the rocks. All I remember is the wind, strong wind.

Great Views!  Sucess!

Been to the top a few times and got some great pano shots back in 2003. Climbed it from both sides and going up the face is a nice work out! Lived there for 18 years so I had to climb it as much as possible.

Mt Tallac Trailhead  Sucess!

Perfect Indian Summer day. Solo hike from the main trail. Probably passed 8-10 others along the way. Beautiful views of Lake Tahoe and Desolation. 4 hours roundtrip.

Main Trail  Sucess!

Nice easy day hike to take the girlfriend on. Great views of "Big Blue". I definitely have to come back with my skiis, the eastern chutes and bowls look awesome.

Nice Leg Stretch  Sucess!

A nice way to escape (reduce) the crowds a bit on my first trip to Tahoe.

descent the Cross  Sucess!

This time I dragged my snowboard up to the top of Mt. Tallac, with 2 of my skier friends who carried their skis with me, how nice of them. I had planned on descending the Sunny Side Bowl, but once on top the conditions allowed us a chance to descend the cross. I will never forget the steepness, and how humbled I felt when I dropped into this section of the mountain.

Glen Alpine  Sucess!

Another rehab outing for my broken ankle (16 weeks ago) and my second trip up Tallac. Nice cool September morning and I had the trail and the summit to myself on the way up. Passed over 50-75 people on the way down.
Pics are here

Route Climbed: Cathedral Lake  Sucess!

Perfectly clear weather all day. Wind kicked in as soon as I climbed out of the bowl above Cathedral Lake, but died down when I was on the summit. Leisurely 7-hour round trip

gilmore lake route  Sucess!

Went early in morning, not so crowded and had summit to ourselves. On way down passed hurds of people heading up. A not so hard hike with great views.

My first "real" summit  Sucess!

A kind stranger coaxed me into summiting (thank you, stranger!) I also met "1000 Peaks" at the summit. Way better than the view from my couch! Tallac inspired me to explore more peaks!

Glen Alpine from Aloha Lake  Sucess!

Hiked up from Aloha Lake where I was camping w/a few friends. Made for a long day, but the views from the top are worth it! There were a few suspicious clouds in the sky, so when my hair started standing straight up, the ~20(!) people at the summit high-tailed it down in a stampede.

SE chutes  Sucess!

Another training climb with Vendulka - hauled 40-60 lbs packs... great weather and actually fun snow climb. I never get tired of the views from the summit.

Moonlit Path  Sucess!

Second trip to the top of Tallac. This time it was done by moonlight and headlamp. Great full moon hike on a warm summer night.

Glen Alpine Trail  Sucess!

August 2003: It's an easy walk-up, but I really enjoyed it. The wildflowers were great and the views were equally good.
