Ascent Trip Report

I stopped by to both the Nelson Cabin and Bonnie Lee Cabin. The mileage include both cabin tour. I started from the Nelson Cabin that caused to traverse for while and climb up to the two false summits. One of the false summit was rocky mountain to scramble up. If you are not interested for cabin tour, I recommended to start from the directory below the summit to avoid to climb up to the false summits and traverse that save some mileage.

The wildflowers are everywhere that was so welcoming. Daytime temperature was little over 100 F degrees for last few days in Death Valley, but it was windy that made cool down when I was climb up, lucky me.

I have posted my photos on my website: http://www.kayplaza.com/hiketravel/hiking/2014/14may.php#nelsonrangehp
