Ascent Trip Report

Timber creek TH. Nice weather, breeze on ridge killed the heat. You can take either switchback on the left up higher to again the ridge and get good side views of the looong N-S She'll ridge line. Got the closest I have ever been to a golden eagle eating a baby deer. Maybe 10 feet before he flew off. Came down a steep rocky cross country route from the saddle to the south and found 3 sole but ancient bristlecone pines and then 6 elk. Surprisingly large fish in that little stream in timber creek.
