Beautiful clear day. Snow mostly gone on the trail except for a bit at the top of the ridge. Lillies sprouting but not in bloom yet.

Ralston Peak Trail  Sucess!

Very nice, warm day for the end of October. Fall is definitely my favorite time in the Sierra. Headed over to Mt. Baldy and Cup Lake to check things out. There was some limited but decent climbing on the ridge between the peaks. Fun day.

Ridge route from Echo Chalet  Sucess!

same as squishy. if you gain the ridge and stay on it right after Becker Pk you're rewarded with many mini bouldering problems along the way. makes the going slower but it sure beats bushwhacking and slogging!

Desolation Refutation  Sucess!

The hike from Camp Sacramento was steady uphill but worth it with a Summit view of Desolation (anything but) Wilderness that made me sad I wasn't going further.

Great day  Sucess!

A warm day in the Sierras. I was on a fairly tight time schedule (a wedding in Sacto at 4:30 pm). From my car to the summit and back in 4 hrs/10 mins. It was a great day, and I felt good. The views, stunning as always, though I was surprised by the low water level in Lake Aloha.

SE Ridge  Sucess!

Snowshoed with 5 others up the ralston trail then off trail. Overshot the summit and went up the SE ridge to gain the summit. The ridge and summit were extremely windy and cold. My hands were numb and I couldn't operate my camera. Snowshoed down from the summit and camped near frozen Avalanche Lake.

Route hiked: Echo Lake to west ridge and back.  Sucess!

I did this hike with Anita. It looked like it might storm but it didn't. The fall color was beautiful as was the view from the top!

quick descent  Sucess!

Climbed it with a couple of co-workers from Sierra-at-Tahoe. Dragged our boards up there, and had a fun descent. Not that hard of a hike and the ride can be pretty fun with a lot of coverage and no avys.

Ralston Peak Trail  Sucess!

Probably my favorite hike in the Tahoe basin. Not much views on the way up since you're in tree line but once you get to the summit the views are simply outstanding. Didn't see many people the day we went on the trail.
