For some reason, I had never once dipped my hiking wick into any of the trails on Mingus Mountain, so this looked like a good introduction and an excuse to get to cooler elevations without driving too far.

The sun made it a bit warm toward the end, but the trails were great, and the off-trail sections were mostly manageable too! A patch of poison ivy made me do a few ballerina steps of avoidance.

Deliverance Cabin was one of the most rugged I've seen, and in an odd location. Whoever built it was apparently not a fan of being found. The way down was an improvisational mess. We enjoyed finding the old trail tread on the way back up.

The high point on the day was Kendall Peak, which somebody promised me was a unique and a peak. It's a good thing somebody added it about 6 minutes ago as a cya. :)

Little Yeager turned into a bit of an adventure in the heat of the afternoon sun, but despite slow travel, it was actually a nice change of pace to add to the mix for the day.

I'll have to explore some more of this little mountain sometime!

I ran circles around the other two, racking up a few extra miles and elevation too. :sweat:
