Inyo Mountain

Saturday - Rachel and I summited Inyo Mountain - made summit in a little under 6 hours including a stop off at the beekeeper's shelter.stayed on summit an hour and a half - the trip back was uneventful. except for the scree ski down to the wash - here you descend 2000 feet in less that 30 minutes - can you say yeeeehaaaaw.

I see everyone's photos from their winter trips and think back to when I was first living in Nevada in the mid 60's as a young teen and what I would have thought of your destinations and how much I have changed since then. Back then I would have had the redneck response of "you are crazy" going up there. Now, I'm just glad it is too far to drive to have to climb "that stuff". :lol: After living in Nevada and visiting its many hidden scenic spots where ever I lived there, I enjoy the trees and mountains of Kalifornia better. Enjoying everyones photos. Thank you.

Duane
Piece of cake.

thanks Duane, TT, and CG - I keep thinking that I am due for a light weekend - this one was under 11 hours - so I guess I should be thankful - it's not my fault - these crazy HST women keep dragging me out in the middle of nowhere. if I didn't know better................ - good thing I am a trusting soul. or my new nickname - hiking slut(will hike for beer)
