9.5 hiking miles with 1300 feet of elevation gain in Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest. Happy Canada Day!
A fun driving day on rock, sand, and pavement, ending with a beautiful desert sunset.
Much to see today and looking forward to tomorrow's hike up to Mount Jefferson.
The trip centerpiece, simply awesome. 14.4 miles round-trip hiking miles, from 7500 to 11686 feet elevation.
Today I'll hike the plateau on the other side of Monitor Valley from Mount Jefferson. Should be beautiful up there.
