Ascent Trip Report

Nice day outside of Julien with Nate.

Hiked the peak through the Volcan Wilderness Preserve. Easy out & back with beautiful views of the desert and inland valleys. Nate did SOTA work on the peak and I tried to not freak out about blooming cumulous clouds and bad weather. Total distance approx 6 miles, with a moving time of 1:45 and total time out at 2:45 (radio work on the summit). At one point I turned around to descend off the ridge, but then hiked back up to Nate figuring that if there was a storm, I would rather be with him. Plus - with his back to the woods, I figured every mountian lion in the county would be after him and his radio. Anyway - he activated the SOTA summit and we hiked back down. Nice date out to Alpine Beer Co post hike and then home.
