    Default Field, Willey and Tom are 1-2-3 on 12/3 for 31,2,3

    We had a fantastic day hiking Tom, Field, Willey and Avalon yesterday with our good friend Val. The weather and trail conditions were amazing for a December day and it was a real bonus to be able to sneak in three more 4000 footers this year.

    My blog post with the story and lots of pictures is here: http://theramblingsblog.blogspot.com...-3-on-123.html

    Wow, you really got great weather for this one! The views from the Willey Range look spectacular -- missed out on most of them when I was there.
    Congrats on 33! I didn't realize you hadn't gotten these ones yet.
    5 peaks in one day! Very impressive...thanks for sharing.

    Very nice photos Mark! What a wonderful day to be out there. I really like how you added the maps at the end. They really give us readers a good sense of your route. Thanks for sharing!

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees
    I'd rather have it thirty,
    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    Thanks guys. It was definitely an amazing day to be out there.

    Owen - you have to get back to Willey on a clear day. The views across Webster Cliffs and up the entire Presidential range are simply incredible. No other vantage point where you can get that view.

    Bob - glad you like the maps. I started including them a few TRs ago in hopes that it would help anyone that was looking at any of the posts for hike planning purposes. It's also fun putting the route into Google Earth and getting to explore it from all angles in 3D.

    Hey Mark,

    Wow, great trip report and pics! Looks like a beautiful day in the mountains. I'm convinced you only hit the Willy range on gorgeous days, based on your previous Avalon shots from a few years back.

    I hate seeing those Gray Jays up there in the cold. It makes me feel bad for them. Wish they'd fly south!

    I really like the route you guys chose too. I always thought about hitting Tom, Field, Willy, then Avalon...but I actually like your route much better.

    Great TR!
    Karl
