Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Im not sure if Eddy will do a post on this since he had to bail because of the heat and lack of water for his pack so i figured i would post my pictures.
Stats:
Mt Lincon
Created by My Tracks on Android.
Total distance: 16.58 km (10.3 mi)
since i know its off so im thinking its closer to 9miles
Total time: 6:41:28
Max elevation: (14250 ft)
Min elevation: (10479 ft)
Elevation gain: (4748 ft)


We started the hike at 6am from our cabin and walked up Quartzville rd till we could find a break in the private land to head towards the mountain. It was getting hot all ready around 7am and concerns about water and the dogs making the summit started. at the post to start the trail to Lincoln we split up and eddy's mom, Danielle, her pup gunny and me with S&J decided we were gonna try for the summit while the rest headed back to the cabin. we had a plan of one of them driving back up the road to pick us up when we got back to the true trail head/off road trail. It ended up being a great girls hike, Eddys mom and I can be trouble and if it were not for Danielle and the pups we would have headed for a 2nd 14er summit, instead we called it good and headed back down the main trail.
here are the pictures Smile


heading up the dirt road, it was a boring first mile or so.


we found a bristle pine tree, they are super OLD


up close view of the cones


summit way out there


snow field where we split off






future home?....


there is a spider web of roads up towards the summit, we just kept picking the ones that went up




Summit!


Danielle


Me and S&J


the girls! eddys mom in the middle










Gunny is passed out




here are the 3 peaks we hiked the other weekend!




Snow! the way off the summit is screen and i knew the pups would take me out going down, i unhooked them and off to the snow field they went






Jack and Gunny were leading the way


flowers at the pond






the only water source on the way up or down the trail


truck ride back to the cabin! thank god as it was HOT and the pups were done.



hope you enjoyed our hike Smile till next time....

We put in 6 miles and I still don't consider it a hike. Sacrificed what I wanted to do to get you guys on trail. Seriously think it's time for you and mother to get a course in route finding and planning. There is a liability on my part when we take off as a group and some break off not entirely sure of where they are going. You can assure me all day long that I won't get sued, but you can't garuantee what family members do...

Anyway, I still have to sort through my pics. Haven't taken the card out of the camera yet.

Looks like fun! Do you guys ever run not wildlife? Your hikes are always so ... barren ... Looking. Just wondering if you see any wildlife at those elevations.

funny you should bring that up.....We saw i think 3 HUGE deer on this hike in the grassy area headed to the trail. Coco saw the last one and kind of went for it while we were breaking on that snow field before splitting, her leash got stuck in this
and that stopped her thank god! i forget what those stupid bushes are called at the moment.
