Maverick's 2019 Annual 7/25-7/26 HST Meet-up

A forum to initiate member meet-up. Looking for a hiking/climbing/fishing/skiing/etc. partner, or are you planning a trip where you wouldn't mind having some company? Last minute invites can be just as fun as a well-planned group trip (sometimes even better) so don't be shy! And be sure to post a trip report to the appropriate forum when you get back.

I'd say you have the perfect name to descend this slope back down to Cloud Canyon (and your set on the other side too). I had a lot of difficulty, but I was off-route too. See oldhiker's great route description.

Lisa and I are officially bailing. Partly the snow, but mostly work obligations that requires me to shorten the trip to be back at work on that Thursday. We're going somewhere, but not sure where at this time.

I actually might make the Meetup after Jim heads home. Depends on conditions, obviously. I'd probably plan to camp at Lake 11,200 on Tuesday evening and drop down to Deadman via Big Bird on Wednesday.

Watching not just the snow cover/melt, but also for any thunderstorm activity, which would make going through Tablelands a dicey proposition. [And if I can't go through Tablelands, I won't go at all...Elizabeth Pass is not going to melt, and I don't much care for the trail approaches via Sugarloaf or Avalanche.]

Looks like there might be a strong monsoonal flow during the meet-up time frame that's been showing up on the model for the last couple of runs at least. Something to watch out for.

The NOAA forecast discussion also mentions a monsoonal flow that could result in thunderstorms about a week from today. Will be watching how this develops.
...At some point in the 5 to 7 day period, the models forecast the onset of the monsoon over Arizona. We`ll need to keep a close eye on this tropical moisture by then because it could creep far enough westward in the 7-10 day period to bring a threat of isolated thunderstorms to our mountains and desert. For at least the next 7 days though, dry weather will prevail over the central California interior...

And my plans to mooch off some fishing lessons gets thwarted once again, :lol:
