There are at least 2 Mount Agassiz in California. One by Tahoe, and this one at the north end of the Palisades sub range of the Sierra, just southwest of Bishop, CA. Mount Agassiz is 13,891', and I started at the South Lake trailhead at 9800' and took the Bishop Pass Trail to Bishop Pass. It is a surprisingly busy trail. From the pass I went up the WNW slope of Agassiz for about 2000' of scrambling. I tried to keep it class 3, but I kept ending up on class 2 stuff. I went down the way I came. The trail was much nicer with all the day people gone.

This was my backup peak last Labor Day went I did Whitney via the MR. I'm glad I did Whitney, because this wasn't as good as I hoped it would be. It was an OK day trip, with some cool views of Hurd Peak and the Palisades area, including the glacier, but it wasn't a very interesting climb overall. At least it made another good summit for my trip. Personally, I felt the best part of this mountain was gaining a view of the Palisades sub range of the Sierra. At the north end of this feature, Agassiz is well positioned for viewing it.

It is because the Mount Elden Trail is just such a great trail, and the summit is pretty nice, too.

Havasu Canyon Trail - Sep 15 2014
I was watching the helicopter make multi-drops of people and supplies when, at one point, a stray horse wandered into the landing field (the gate was open). The guys unloading the supplies chased it around the field until it went back out the gate. Then as it was running up the main drag, another resident must have thought it got loose so he shooed it back into another open gate and back into the field. So now these guys are chasing it around the field again but this time they start pelting it with rocks. The horse was panicking and didn't know where to go. Rocks were being hurled at it from all directions. He ended up falling down after a really hard rock hit and it looked like he broke...
