Trip Report: Hike White Baldy from Red Pine

Hike White Baldy from Red Pine
By Jeff Munger
HIKE 07/11/2015 MSD

It was an invigorating hike to the top of White Baldy on Saturday the 11th. We departed from the White Pine trailhead at around 8 am. Branching off of the WP Trail we headed up towards Red Pine while it was still cool. After a brief stop at the Maybird cutoff it was on to the lower and then the upper lakes in a snap. After a brief break to rest and re-hydrate up the "hill" we went. Julie did a masterful job of leading the way through the boulderfield and up the rocky couloir. The scree was challenging but the views from the top were absolutely amazing. Just one of the many reasons we do what we do.
The weather cooperated and was nearly perfect. It was sunny, but not too warm. Really ideal hiking weather. The clouds were light and scattered and the skies above us stayed clear for the majority of the day. It was only the last little group down that got to enjoy to a brief kiss of hail before the sun broke back through again. It was a very enjoyable trip with a great group of people.
Thanks, to all those who attended and contributed to the success of this little adventure. Let's do it again sometime.
Attending were Julie, Bob, Tom, Keith, Michele, Steve, Alex, Grace, Vivian, Paul, Nancy, Ed, and Jeff.
