Mosquitoes and marmot sex  Sucess!

hiked in from the north side of Fallen Leaf Lake, swatting mosquitoes just past Floating Island Lake where we turned and beelined for the summit, or where we thought it was. vexed a bit by the brush, we ascended the summit to find randy marmots and (ground squirrels?) bold enough to sit on your boot and take food from your hand.

Tallac Trail  Sucess!

Just a little dusting of snow on the ridge, but VERY cold. 40+ mph wind gust too, should've brought my balaclava.

From Gilmore Lake  Sucess!

A thoroughly enjoyable walk, as always. Some rather annoying rodents on the summit.

Nice hike  Sucess!

Twice in 3 days, during a family vacation at Stanford Sierra Camp: On Monday Sept 17, alone on a beautiful summer day, 3.5 hours roudtrip via the Cathedral Lake trail. Then on Thursday May 20th, with René Renteria, after a snowstorm that lingered into the day. We went up the Cathedral Lakes trail and went down the Glen Alpine / PCT trail, for a 5 hour roundtrip.

Alone on the summit.

Climbed Tallac as a loop hike from Fallen Leaf Lake. Amazingly I did not see a single other hiker the entire day. Went up via Glen Alpine and down via Cathedral Lake.

Mt Tallac trail  Sucess!

Great day for a climb. It was very clear and the views seemed endless. The summit area was a happening place with a lot of people and squirrels.

From Gilmore Lake  Sucess!

Simple climb from Gilmore lake, where we spent the night, resulting in a phenominal summit view!

beautiful hike  Sucess!

Hiked from the Glen Alpine Trailhead. Camped at Gilmore Lake and hiked to the summit the next morning. Beautiful view, little hazy and windy with lots of little critters running around.

first climb of the season  Sucess!

A few notes: (1) LOTS of exposed areas; wear good sun protection; (2) despite elevation, it was pretty darn warm; (3) was expecting more scree-type conditions; just lots and lots of rocks in every size. But a great day had by all.

Jacks->Dicks->Tallac talus traverse  Sucess!

Climbed Tallac at the tail end of a solo 20+ mile Jacks->Dicks->Tallac talus traverse from Glen Alpine. It was a gorgeous day in every respect. There was an unabashedly curious marmot on the summit that kept me company.

whiteout  Sucess!

a good climb up and solid ski down. lots of freshies. the summit brought whiteout conditions making for a bit more of an interesting time skiing the bowl. only three other folks on the entire mountain at the time. a great day.

Mt Tallac trail  Sucess!

Enjoyed the hike. I started too late in the day though and got caught in the dark on the way back
