Being an inveterate peak bagger, I had to continue to the summit after climbing Walk on the Wild Side, much to the disdain of my purist companions.
Quick summit before heading out to the Grand Canyon

We did this as a night hike from the campground at Sheep's Pass. Really neat way to summit this little mountian and viewing the halo lighting of the Coachella Valley.
Jordan 6 yrs old and Ashlynn 5 yrs old both summited with daddy on a fine Sunday afternoon. Family picnic and playing on the rocks at Hidden Valley afterwards. Fun family day!
Very enjoyable hike with great views from the summit.
This was my first hike in Joshua Tree. Did this one early in the morning in cool and cloudy weather.
My dad and I were in the area and had about an hour to spare so we ran up just in time to take in the sunset at the top. Beautiful views of the desert below.
Great hike, short and rocky. Awesome views from the top.
Got all of us to the top, didn't stay long it was windy and cold.
Very easy and enjoyable hike.
This was my first hike in southern California after moving there in August 1999. I hiked up Ryan Mountain on a very hot day and saw several equally hot women on the trail all hiking solo. As this was my first hike in the region, I couldn't help but wonder if all the regional trails would be populated by gorgeous women. This turned out to be a hasty generalization.
Did this short hike as a cool down after a strenuous Wonderland of Rocks Traverse the previous day.
Did as part of hsp hike of three peaks. wonderful view, small patches of snow on the trail.
This was a beautiful morning dayhike for my brother and I as we started off our day in JTNP.
It was windy and cold on top but a great climb overall! Loved the views.
I've been up the Ryan Mountain trail more times than I can remember right now, but it's fun every time! I love Jtree!
Not sure why I haven't done this before, but it was a gorgeous day and well worth the short hike.
After going to a conference over the weekend in San Diego, I headed out to the country for a few days. I wanted to visit Joshua Tree, and Ryan Mountain seemed like a good peak to climb in the process. It was hot, but the views were worth it!
it's fun to jog up the trail and dodge tourists.
