Sonora Pass for a day hike

Since M is still dealing with some minor issues, we bailed on our backpacking trip to Desolation this week, and instead went up to our cabin near Sonora. But we didn't give up on hiking completely. We took a day to drive up to Sonora Pass and climb a small peak that had been calling to me over the years.

It was a short, very steep hike with a bit of a scramble up on top, but boy, was it worth it. The views were wonderful, the air was sparkling clear, the clouds were dramatic, and best of all, M was enjoying almost every minute of it.

It turns out that some of the locals might climb this in the spring and then ski back down again--they left a faux survey marker on top, looking as if it were official, which it is not.

Here's a link to the rest of the photos.
