Slept in a little and drove up to lone pine saddle via El Oso. Its a long drive. But I was excited for my first shot at Four Peaks. Got to the trailhead and parked The Stang right next to the Wallymobile (he got there earlier to hike the mother lode). :scared: Good thing I decided on just hitting Brown's rather than the lode, had a sore throat so that didnt help me while hiking and was congested a little, no condition to do a lunatic hike like the lode.

The trail to the saddle is nice and enjoyable. The weather on the trail was awesome couldnt ask for better, but when I got past the saddle and starting heading up into the Chute it was downright cold and windy. It was also pretty chilly on top of the peak. Ate lunch and headed back down. Looked for Wally and his friend on the other peaks but I didnt see them.

Finally did Brown's Peak! Its about time. Great hike, will probably come back a few times over the summer on weekdays when the crowds thin out. The views are some of the best I've seen, but I'd like to see the view from the other peaks as well, particularly Peak 4, as then nothing would be blocking the view of the supes.
