I tried to do a(24)like Ryan Jordan but because of some family stuff I could only do a(12)...I left the house at 5:36 am and drove to Hwy 108 and arrived at the Crabtree TH at 9:30..There was no one on the road this was the morning after Holloween. I started to hike at about 9:45.

I was not able to do a (24) but I did manage to do a (13:34)..A quick dash to the mountains before Winter sets in.
Speaking of Winter are can I say no Winter..It was 75-80 degrees at noon at about 7,800 ft on Nov.1st Wow!! The Carbon Flame War Debate??? I think Global Warming is actually in progress in the Sierras as I type these words.

Nice trip on 11/19/2009 12:57:41 MST Print View

I was bored one day and was itching to get out. I took my St. Bernard and we trekked to mi-wok ranger station from the bay. I must have went like a week before you. The only thing i saw was a horse trailer at crabtree trailhead. The ranger said I should watch for hunters, especially with a St. Bernard which could be confused for a bear or mountain lion (he has been known as a horse and a cow). The trip is nice but I found a dirty diaper near where I camped. I hate the f-ing dirtbags who leave that crap. That was one piece of trash that I Didin't pack out.

Would you pack out a dirty diaper if you found it on the ground?
