Tahoe Rim Trail Map

(Click image for full size)


Armstrong Pass

Tossed and turned waiting for morning after 4:30. On trail by 7:00. Uphill past great campsites with a view. Beautiful flowers and a snow slope. Cell signal. Went down towards road for water. Steep. Long ways. Met sheriff and friend. Girlscouts with big packs. Hiked hard up to armstrong pass for 1 hour then back down. Ate snack with mike then hiked hard again to pass. Beautiful rocks, passed sherrif and friend again. We had a great view.

The small snow field on the other side was fun to glisade down. Two bikes slide down too. The trail is awesome. The views terrific. Weather perfect. Occational mosquito or two.

Had another break when we crossed over to see Carson City.

Camped on the saddle after creek. About 2 more miles to kingsbury south trailhead. Windy and ants but ok.
