Wheeler Grand Traverse  Sucess!

1st; 7/5/16: Rachael and I started from Bull-of-the-Woods trailhead, summited Walter, Wheeler, Simpson, Old Mike, "Fairchild", Lake Fork and Kachina and then descended the ski area back to the car. Some fun scrambly sections between Simpson and "Fairchild" and again to get up Lake Fork. Long loop, not sure the mileage of vert but we took about 9 hours to complete it.
2nd; 5/19/18: Rachael, Scot and I started at Williams Lake trailhead and summited Wheeler, Simpson, "Fairchild', Lake Fork and Kachina before descending through the ski area back to the car.

On the way to Old Mike  Sucess!

Named after someone who died in the Great War. It's a nice ridge line.

Do it!  Sucess!

A worthy addition to any wheeler peak hike! The crowds noticablly thin out and people look at you with curiosity when you leave wheeler peak going the "wrong" way. You can actually have a private moment on this one. Do Old Mike too

6 peak day via Bull of the Woods  Sucess!

I love this time of year - perfect weather, sunny blue skies, autumn colors! Enjoyed the hot springs at Ojo Caliente, green chili beer and a suite with a kiva fireplace afterward. :-)
