Ascent Trip Report

Hiked via Bull-of-the-Woods Mt., Frazer Mt., and La Cal Basin with Wheeler Peak as the ultimate goal for day. I started too late at 1154 hr. By the time I reached La Cal Basin a T-storm was pulling in so I had to turn around. I don't remember seeing anyone on the trail all day long as this is not the standard route to Wheeler except a group on horseback riders who gave me a beer. Beautiful country. Returned to car at 4 pm.
