quick trip  Sucess!

Mt. Tallac trail up (2 hours) and down (1,5 hours). Still plenty of snow above Cathedral Lake. Only met two people the whole day, which was a nice change of pace from Half Dome.

Early season main trail  Sucess!

This started on the main trail, but sort of devolved into a talus scramble as much of the high plateau was still snowbound. Just me and the marmots on the summit.

Pics here.

Ski down  Sucess!

My ten year old daughter's first time up - we all skied from the summit to the end of the road. Great times and a really warm day.

Beautiful Dayhike  Sucess!

Quite possibly one of the most beautiful hikes I've been on recently...continual views of Lake Tahoe and the basin make this a rewarding hike.

Catherdal Lake  Sucess!

Another beautiful December dayhike as I keep waiting for the snow to fall. The lakes were frozen and there was some snow and ice on the trail but surely not enough to ski.

A bit of wind!  Sucess!

Been up here many times but this one was epic! 30-40mph winds were hitting the lake but I was training for Orizaba so I went for it. Great climb until I crested the switchbacks and was almost blown off my feet by the wind! I ended up dropping down the east side and coming up through the last chute to avoid the wind. Snow, sleet and hail follwed me all the way to the car! I love the mountains!!

Glen Alpine Trail  Sucess!

I have climbed Tallac via the Glen Alpine Trail many times and it is one of favorite hikes. This trail is much nice than the Tallac Trail. You will never get tired of the awesome views from the top.

Tallac!  Sucess!

Climbed Tallac many times. In summer, fall, spring, and winter. The view never gets old. Great skiing down the cross and in north bowl. Spent the night on the summit in 1994 and watched the best sunrise of my life.

Tahoe's Best  Sucess!

My 11 year old son and I made this beautiful hike - which was made harder than it looked by the trail being so often made up of round golf ball size rocks that strain your brakes going down. We went up the back way up the talus near the top rather than follow the trail around. Overall, a treat for the eyes and a kicking for the butt.

Great Views  Sucess!

I took the trip advice to "peel" off the trail at the clearing and bushwack 100 yds toward the SE chutes. It was not bad at all, i ended up climbing the ridge between the scree cirque and the actual chutes. Excellent class 3 and some wonderful moderate class 4 climbing.

Wow  Sucess!

Can't wait to try this one with my snowboard!! How is it possible that we passed more than several women on this trail, and all of them were hot?! Good stuff.
