In September we went to as many places over 8,000 feet as we could fit in while traveling though eastern Nevada into the western desert of Utah and on to southeast Utah. The high points, often literally, were Angel Lake, Wheeler Peak campground, the House Range and the Henry mountains of Utah.

 

We pushed ourselves to hike nearly every day and to do that hiking up mountains and down canyons as often as possible on unmarked trails. That is, doing our own route finding. It was very hard at times for us, but very fun and fulfilling. Not too bad for a couple of 69 year old people that live at 200 feet above sea level!

 

Attached is a link to some of the highlights -- I will keep adding to the album over the next couple of weeks.

 

I hope you enjoy the views and brief descriptions:

Happy trails!

Thanks Monte. They will keep dribbling out for another week or so. In between dealing with house painters, appliance technicians, pilates classes, etc.

 

It was a lot of fun.

The basement metamorphics in the Rubies are amazing!  Looking forward to more as you have opportunity to post.

Thanks Foy. I think the metamorphic core complexes of the Rubies and the Snake ranges, the Cambrian to Triassic sediments of western Utah and the laccoliths of the Henrys would have warmed your geologic heart!
