Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help!

PostSubject: Hiking with Dogs~ Mt. Boreas, 13,082ft~Failed Summit   Tue Jul 05, 2016 6:32 pm

So last weekend, 6/26 I tried to take Sierra and Jack up Mt. Boreas, a "simple" 3 mile RT hike with less then 2k elevation gain, something easy for Sierra. It was one of those times the Universe sent me a ton of messages to stay home, and even at the trail head to turn around and i ignored everyone of them Sad
fireworks kept us up way to late sat night from neighbors
sierra did not eat breakfast
sierra had the runs at the trail head
my water bladder in my back pack leaked from the bottom of the hose and needs to be replaced
she fought me from the start of the trail
1/4 of the way up she puked
we made it to the ridge and point 12,720(our "summit" for the day)
there were 2 goats up there Jack wanted to eat
we made it so close to the summit but both dogs said no to the rocks
we turned around and went back to the car
got stuck in traffic trying to go home
my normal hiking for the mental break just caused mental frustration Sad
we did cover 3.1 miles RT and gained 1,357ft of elevation.
so if anything i did get some good pictures out of our day.
here are a few of them:


where we started


blazing our own trail


Boreas behind Jack


our "summit" point 12,720ft




we made it over to that snow field, the high point behind that was going to be our summit. Just noticed you can see the 2 goats between Jack and the snow.


SNOW!


mom im done, no more for me


the goats we chased away




heading back down, trying to be happy






looking back up where we had been, the point in the middle is 12,720ft, the large mound to the right and in the back is were we were trying to go.

Bummed my life is busy and i will not get to go out again till the end of the month Sad

Well, till our next adventure...

Been there.
Except with a child having nothing to do with the goal.
All you can do is roll with it.

How close do you let the dogs get to mt. goats?
I used to think they were harmless, but then that guy was killed by one in the Olympics.

thankfully i still had them leashed to me when we got on the ridge, or they both would have taken off for the goats. we got pretty close to them and they just kept running a head of us.


this was barely zoomed in, as we were headed to the snow field.

i have been on other busy peaks where the goats got really close to us and did not move. i do not trust them, they can kill you or the dogs.

Adventures come in many forms, good and bad, but they are still adventures. When looking at such good pictures you can't even tell from our end the day didn't go your way.

Can I just "Ditto" what Jenn said? You may not have gotten to where you wanted to go this time but that just leaves the challenge there for the next time.

And I agree, those are some fantastic pictures!!!
