Jackass Peak

Jackass Peak 7

It sleeted on and off, sometimes pretty heavily during the adventure, but I was never miserable. Many others were though, and verbal about it. If I can digress here for a moment, this is the one complaint I have about most outings I’ve been on with other people: the conversation. If I am near the front, the teacher hasn’t much to say. If I am not near the front, out of earshot, the teacher has interesting things to say to those that are in earshot. At that time I am moslty around people having a conversation about something they hate, like their job or some celebrity or the weather. To get out, I pretend to adjust something and fall back a tad. I usually end up hiking between to clumps of people by myself. (There are a few exceptions, you know who you are, cuz i like you. :o ) OK that’s enough.
The hike was mostly level ground, until the last ¼ mile, where it was a rock scramble. We saw a natural spring, a couple of other meadows, and an example of a not so good campsite. It was awesome at the top of Jackass peak. For a moment the sun came out and it even felt a little warm. I was up there with a small group that needed close supervision due to the potential danger of falling a rather long way. One girl in the group, I think her name was Julia, was just too tiny to reach some of the holds, so some of us helped her in a couple spots. Her and Michelle, who seems to be her BBF were in a cooking group with another guy named Joe. I really got to like these guys, and not just because of the food they brought.

  1. You know, if you look at the picture really closely, it almost looks like there some tiny people congregating on that rock.
