    Climbed Mt Mellenthin. Beautiful day, and good elevation training. Thought I might try to bag Mt Peale as well, but I am not in good enough shape nor use to the high altitude, so I went down and did the Gold Basin area on the way back (separate triplog).

    I consider myself very lucky to have shared the peak with some of the mountain goats.

    To hike
    From Moab, go south on 191 and take the Manti-La Sal Loop road east and up into the mountains, turn right at Geyser Pass Road, and then turn right to the road into Gold Basin. There is parking along the road and at the end is a trailhead, but you want to backtrack a bit from the trailhead to ascend the ridge.
