Starting tomorrow, I'm loopy!
I begin my regular nomadic phase for the warmer months - looping to mostly avoid the deserts I love so much. See, my First Love is mountains.
If our paths cross, maybe we can go for a walk or share a meal. My general path:
Late May: Easternmost Arizona, Blue Range, wild trout, wilder swimming holes, a chance to get acclimated for the Old Man.
Early June: Mt Taylor near Grants NM, Albuquerque resupply, Santa Fe Ski Area access to Pecos Wilderness for a week, with a couple of peaks in mind, day hike and 3 day trips.
Resupply Santa Fe, up Pecos River Canyon for a chance for a longer trip, aiming for peaks on off days.
Last week of June: Las Vegas NM area. Buddy in the area. An overnight to Hermit Peak. Kayak. Hot Springs.
4th of July: Colorado, visit a sister up at Fairplay. Climb Buffalo Peaks. Climb Mt Sopris.
Mid July: San Rafael Swell UT. Climb Mt Delano with a long time backpacking friend. Blitz Nevada.
Late July: 12 days in Emigrant Wilderness, the cap of the Yosemite North Boundary Country.
August: Dodge smoke.
Early September, smoke allowing: 8 days in the Cathedral Range of Yosemite.
Late September, smoke allowing: Sierra peakbagging or Arizona Strip N Rim Grand Canyon Country.
October, mid: Back to the Sky Islands and deserts of S AZ.
Go for a walk?
Best wishes to all with nomadic spirits this warm season.
