Joshua Tree - Spectre Point 11/12/05 : Hiked to Spectre Point in Joshua Tree Nal't Park with Kathy. This was my first hike in six weeks due to catching a bad case of acute bronchitis that cause me to miss three weeks of work. It was hard doing the hike, but I was glad to be able to hike again after being sick for so long.

2006 (Dec 10) Conglomerate Mesa and Jack Gunn Peak : Dayclimbed Conglomerate Mesa, using only the description from Andy Zdon's 'Desert Summits'.  I was on the wrong summit (no map, no waypoints), but found the right one.  Then I went for Jack Gunn Peak, and again climbed the wrong peak, but found the right one. Both peaks were just off the edge of my map.  Originally I didn't have a plan for Sunday, but since we didn't summit Saturday, I looked thru my book and found these.  (wk 47, day 2)

2006 (April 29) Surprise Canyon to Panamint City, DVNP : Met up with WLD to do Panamint City. He was on antibiotics and he had to turn back. I continued on, and as I approached the brick chimney, I heard my name. Beldar was up there with some friends. It was 85 - 95 deg up there, but the running water helped cool me down. The hike is 6 miles each way, with ~4,000' el gain.  (wk 15, day 1)

Blind Spring Hill : SnowDude had stuff to do at the condo, so I drove to Benton to hike Blind Spring Hill.  No map, no directions, and I climbed the wrong 'hill'.  We had planned to snowboard in the afternoon, so I headed back. (wk 45, day 4, pt 1)
