I’m sure everyone remembers the old joke about breasts and martinis…I’m here to tell you two teats are perfect! When in Mammoth on the July 4th weekend you have to flee town to beat the crowds. So we 4 x4’d out past the Minaret Summit, to Deadman Pass, and parked where the road ends. Then we hiked the San Joaquin Ridge all the way to Two Teats (I love saying that!) It was a moderate 4-hour hike and we didn’t see a single soul. But as one would expect along a ridge line in the Eastern Sierras, it was windy. The gorgeous wildflowers were in full display and blue, yellow & black, and orange & black butterflies were flittering about the ridge line.
Awesome wild flowers! Nice way to celebrate the 4th. Miss you guys…..
Oh, I’m so jealous!! Someday…
Take my breath away hike I wanna go too! The wildflowers look like a National Geographic pic! Awesome color! Amy, was that Dad?
Nope, just me wearing a hat like my dad wears when hiking. R and I went out to the end of the road a few years ago just 4 x 4ing, not knowing there was a hike. We were ill prepared…tons of mosquitos and no spray! Then the three of us returned last year and only did part of the hike. Returning to go all the way to Two Teats has been on the list ever since. Now Greg will most likely want to return to go past Two Teats to San Joaquin Mountain!
The scenery is breathtaking! Great pics. I am so glad you guys are sharing your adventures. Sending love, Sharon
Beautiful pictures! Looks like an Epic hike…any Class 2 bouldering involved?
Not like Sunset Mountain in Borrego! But there were a few times the trail disappeared in a scree field.
Love to see that you’re still rockin’ the Fins sweatshirt, Greg!
