At sunrise Clark Norgaard arrives at Chez Schulhauser's and we load up his 4WD Ford Expedition to join others at Camp Grasshopper for Sunday breakfast. With this being my first visit to the Peeley TH at the end of FR201 -- let's just say we had difficulty locating Camp Grasshopper...

Undeterred, we broke out the BBQ and made breakfast at the Peeley TH - bacon, eggs, toast, juice (forgot the Prickly Pear Vodka) and great conversation. We hoped to cross paths with somebody from Camp Grasshopper, but did unexpectedly find Wally Farak on the trail, speed hiking towards Sheep Mountain. Wally gave us some vague instructions on how to find Camp Grasshopper. Clark and I agreed to give it a look after we tackle Mount Peeley Summit.

We find the double cairns along the trail indicating the cut-off to Mount Peeley Summit. This is more or less some non-trail scrambling up the slopes to the summit. You do come across a cairn or two along the way to give you a little confidence you are on the right track.

What can I say about Mount Peeley Summit -- totally unexpected spectacular 360 degree views!

Speed trek back to the TH for some refreshments and onto Camp Grasshopper. Clark and I walk in along the side FR and find Hank the Pyro tending fire in anticipation of some frigid temperatures tonight.

Hank gives Clark the complete background story about Joe Domin's disappearance before we head back home for dinner. Good to see Hank and sorry we missed the others at Sunday breakfast!
