Trafton Mountain and Antelope Mountain

Trafton Mountain and Antelope Mountain

Our plan was to hike 2-3 peaks in the Glass Mountain Range. After 30 min of driving dirt roads, we came across a 50' snowdrift that was too much to shovel. So we ended up driving north of Benton and bagged Trafton Mountain (7,825'). After, we drove the dirt roads in the area and ended up on Antelope Mountain, which I hiked from Adobe Valley last year. On the way home we stopped at the Owens River to catch the sunset.

Bummer! I had to back down without a periscope

That Owens River sunset shot is awesome!

I also like the shot of the White Mountains...was just up there a couple of weeks ago.

Thanks Mountaineer! We were a little early but waited for the sunset that night. We had not driven those roads, so it was nice killing time back there. Yeah, White Mtns, going back soon! :nod:
