A little off time at high elevation...

My husband Greg and I love hiking whenever we can get away, and last weekend we took 3 days to disconnect and summit three peaks -- Mount Rose, Granite Chief, and Mount Lola.

This was our second time summiting Mount Rose -- while this was the highest elevation peak of our weekend, it was the easiest and least-technical climb with a well-marked and manicured trail.

We had attempted to summit Granite Chief several years ago and actually got a little lost that time...whoops! During that prior hike there was still snow on the ground and we could not find the trail markers. With no snow this time around, the trail was less confusing to navigate. It was beautiful! And the most difficult of the three hikes of the weekend. That last half mile or so is STEEP! 

Mount Lola was the most beautiful hike of the weekend. We had a tough time finding the trailhead, it was raining, and we nearly aborted the hike before it started! But, we did find the trailhead and the rain let up. What a gorgeous hike -- the wildflowers were in full bloom and it was truly amazing. We saved the best for last. 

Shout out to my awesome assistant Sean who helped my clients while Greg and I goofed off. Gotta get away!
