 San Luis Peak - a great experience  

Our trip up San Luis was quite eventful. Nothing too crazy, but did get to see some moose. It is also safe to say that snowshoes and crampons are not required. The snow is almost gone already, believe it or not!

The road is also in great shape, in my opinion.

Don't let San Luis fall off your radar like I had - the area is wonderful!

Anyways, if you want to read the full trip report, GO HERE.

I just climbed San Luis the 16th and found conditions similar to yours, but your photos put mine to shame! I think the moose must hang out there in the pond waiting for climbers to go by. He gave us a curious look then went back to eating/drinking. We also saw two huge beavers. I'll post the TR as soon as I can. Great report, thanks!

Appreciate the kind words!

Chris: It must be the same guy! He did not give us much attention, but did wander off into the woods to avoid us. We also saw a younger moose early in the morning that scurried off as well. I will return there - not very often you get to see moose (although that is 3 in the past year)!
