Hiked on the road from the locked gate at 4600'. Saw three bighorn near the summit. Could not find the register,
We hiked up the north road to the summit. I was surprised to see that Gerry Roach was the last person to sign only a few days before me.
Over the next 5 days Heather and I did Eureka Dunes HP, Sandy Point, Last Chance, Chocolate, Towne BM, Tucki, and Ibex Dunes HP.
Walked the summit road with El Elvis.
Took my lab, Thor, on his first 'real' hike. He had a great time helping me look for bighorns (yes, we saw them).
Got my 2WD Hyundai Santa Fe to the gate with only minimal problems then hiked up the road. With Kiwi the Dog on a chilly morning.
Flew off, on my hangglider. Thermalled to 12,000 feet and landed in Pearblossom.
With Matthew, doing some peakbagging in the Barstow area. Trip Report
Up from the gate on the Ord Mountain Road on the way back from Thanksgiving weekend in the Mojave desert. Watched the sunset from the summit, very nice.
Cooler than I expected. The dog had fun chasing quail.
I didn't have a map but followed my nose and ended up repeating Dennis Poulin's road route all the way up. Up: 2 hours, down: 1 hour. No restrictive signs anywhere. A nice road hike up some stark desert slopes. Beautiful early-morning and cool, especially for late May when the heat is supposed to already be here! Trip report with photos: Ord Mountain, 5/27/08
Hiked up the road from the north. Nice morning.
Awesome views of the desert and of course lots of reptiles for me to play with! good times!
A really great peak with really great views. Fun route up the notch. Tagged Rodman right after the Ord.
