2013-11-09 - Del Shay Cabin hike   88 Photos   Nov 9, 2013
 
A 6-1/2 hour 7.5 mile 2,000' AEG round-trip hike to Del Shay Cabin along with exploration of three ancient ruin sites I heard were nearby. The round-trip from Forest Road 1938 to Del Shay Cabin is only 2 miles instead of 12.8 miles if approached from north so we had plenty of time to wander around for 5+ miles. We located two of the three sites but found a few potsherds only at the first.

2013-10-29 - Skunk Tank Ridge summit hike   48 Photos   Oct 29, 2013
 
A 4 hour 6.6 mile 1,700' AEG hike to the summit of Skunk Tank Ridge in the Sheep Basin Mountain Quadrangle. I only planned it as a recon of Forest Road 1398 but when it simply vanished I set off on foot in an attempt to pick it up again. While following where it 'used to be' I passing within a half-mile of Skun Tank Ridge so I added the side-trip to the summit.
 
2013-10-27 - Sierra Ancha deer hunting   45 Photos   Oct 27, 2013
 
With deer hunting season open we decided to try our luck in the western Sierra Ancha with cameras instead of firearms. We took four .5 to 2 mile hikes in which we encountered 14 deer. Two were legal bucks that provided prime shots if we were to bag them. Many hunters were out and about so we were surprised we heard no shots all day. We wondered, was it bad luck, poor hunting skills, or 'hunters' too lazy to get off their ATV's? Personally I don't think it was a lack of good luck.

A 2-1/2 hour 4.6 mile 815' AEG round-trip hike to the Seven Kivas in Road Canyon on the Cedar Mesa Plateau of Utah. The hike included a descent of over 500 feet in less than half a mile, which of course we would have to ascend on the return trip.
