Haven't checked out your second set, but had to check out Dana! I'm jealous!!! I miss Yosemite!! Looks like some great views on this hike! Don't know about that cold, though! Snowdude has the right idea; THAT'S how to end a cold, hard day of hiking!!!

Snowy, your hiking habits are starting to remind me of me! Lots of night hiking!!! :unibrow:

What's up with those 2 guys? Even I'm not that bad!!! :retard: Can't see camping on top of Dana at this time of year. I don't get it. :dontknow

That wasn't night hiking, it was only 6pm when we got back! Shorter days!

That other couple were night hiking! Not sure what they were doing. We saw them at 5:15pm. Maybe they wanted sunset pics? The female was in the lead and they were still heading up. Hope they got out ok.

And thanks, Skibum! The format is a lot easier to look at. Still transferring albums. Just found out my 3snownymph account expires on Fri, so I guess I have to pay it now so I can transfer. :mad:

Blind Spring Hill (Day 4 of 5, part 1)

PHOTOS: http://snownymph.smugmug.com/gallery/2182718


SnowDude had stuff to do at the condo, so I drove to Benton to hike Blind Spring Hill. No map, no directions, and I climbed the wrong 'hill'. I checked my GPS and was only at 6800', instead of 7200'. We had planned to snowboard in the afternoon, so I headed back.
