Day 5 – Pyramid Peak

Our trip ended with an unforgettable hike to the summit of Pyramid Peak.  Everything about the day turned out fantastic — we had great weather, crystal clear views with no haze, a full hour to spend up on the summit, and a very enjoyable (but sometimes challenging) hike.  Pyramid Peak has such great views all around from the summit that it really surprised me.  I wasn’t expecting to be able to see so much.  I look forward to sharing the views that Tobin and I had from the summit with you when I write up a report about this hike in the near future to share here on the site.  After the successful hike of Pyramid Peak, we headed back home.  It truly was a great Fall 2014 trip to Death Valley.  For the Spring of 2015 and Fall of 2015, I will only be making brief 2-3 day trips to the park to carry out hikes.  But in the Spring of 2016, I will be doing another extended family trip there.  I’m already really looking forward to it.  Six brand new reports will be coming soon from this trip.
