Start: 06/27/2009 1:00 am
End: 06/28/2009 1:00 am

We'll backpack from the trailhead parking at Convict Lake to our camp site at Bright Dot Lake. Sunday morning we'll ascend the northwest slope and take time for a leisurely snack on the summit. Ice axes possibly needed.

Start: 06/27/2009 1:00 am

Devil’s Graveyard sounds like a place name out of The Blair Witch Project, but that’s what the Sierra National Forest calls our campsite. We’ll hike from Lake Thomas A. Edison (2330 m), taking easy trail to Devil’s Bathtub (2794 m) and continuing cross-country to our camp at the diabolical headwaters (3250 m). Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning, we’ll visit the class 2 summit of Silver Peak (3620 m). Sunday hike out and drive home.

Start: 06/27/2009 1:00 pm
End: 06/28/2009 1:00 pm

This is a relatively slow-paced dayhike, suitable for beginners. We will car-camp near Ebbetts Pass, then hike up Noble Canyon to grab the peak. Sunday is open at this point, with options to perhaps try something else, do some exploring, or have a leisurely drive home. This is an area of the Sierra that we don’t often explore, so the hike should be enjoyable.

Start: 07/03/2009 1:00 am

Visit the scenic North Fork of Bishop Creek, Piute Pass and alpine Humphreys Basin. Endure the class 2, loose scree of Humphreys' southwest slope before enjoying the final two short, roped pitches over solid rock. A half rope-length rappel begins the decent. Required: climbing harness, belay/rappel device, roped climbing experience, group bear canisters; also, a $10 deposit to cover cost of the permit (forfeit if cancel, difference refunded at trailhead).

Start: 07/03/2009 1:00 pm

Backpack about 7 miles up the McGee Creek Trail starting at about 7800 ft to Big McGee Lake at 10,400. Climb Red and White Mtn southeast face. For faster stronger hikers, an option exists to also climb Red Slate Mtn (13,163) from McGee Pass. These peaks are very colorful, great for celebrating our national birthday.
