We started the hike to the peak from Hwy 178, 1.8 miles east of Salsberry Pass.
The first part of the hike was across flat desert.
Starting up one of the canyons that leads to the peak.
Group of coyote melons.
We came upon this dry falls.
Climbing up to a ridge to get around the falls.
Looking towards the peak from the ridge.
Back in the canyon.
This canyon had a lot of wet spots from a spring that was further up.

Almost up to the saddle that's north of the peak.

View down the canyon we hiked up from the saddle.
There was a lot of bones in the canyon. Think that these are from a bighorn sheep.
We took a different route down.

On the flats as we head back to the trucks.
We camped at an old miner's cabin.
Hanging out at the cabin. Rachel made us salmon and pasta for dinner, good stuff.
View of the cabin.
Stuff is keep in the refrigerator to keep the rats from getting to it. No power at the cabin.
Putter and balls. There is a seven hole golf course set up in front of the cabin.

Driving out to the highway. Plan to hike up Sheephead Mountain today.
