Scouting Blodget for Dry Rock

The warm weather the past few days has me thinking about long routes on sunny granite. It also shut down our ski plans for today so we ran up Blodget canyon to see how much snow had melted off the spires. They looked to still have some snow and wet on them but should be pretty pleasant to climb on if we get some more warm weather soon.

A beaver pond seems to have appeared just below the spires where I don't remember seeing one before:

The trail still had a lot of snow on it and we got to use our Sierra Trading Post Yak Traks for the first time in the real mountains. They slide around a bit on our feet, especially when they get loose snow under them or get caught on roots and things on the bare dirt sections and mine slid off my toe once after a couple of miles of running. Still, they added enough traction to confidently run on the snow and will probably see more use in the next couple of months.

You have to know a lot to travel. I even had to do a kind of homework. But I must say that thanks to it was quite easy.

Scatting up on the high hills is the wish of every person. It seems that we fly in the sky like the birds. When we see the Blodget we feel happy, because, they are covered with snow.

Amazing images! These visuals remind me of the time when I used to go trekking with my buddies. Man, I miss those old times so much. Hmm, I think I should get my stuff ready and plan a trekking trip with my friends. I first have to look for someone who can do my dissertation for me, so I can go trekking.
