We had friends in town this weekend and we wanted to take them to Mt Charleston for a hike. The weather is getting colder up there since it is above 7500 feet and so we thought this may be one of our last chances to get up there. We decided to do the 6.2 mile Bristlecone Trail and it was a very windy day.
It turned out to be a very interesting hike. First, we came upon 2 wild horses which had always been rumored to live in the Spring Mountain Range but I had never seen them in my 12 years visiting these trails. We also met a gentleman on the trail who claimed to be in his “mid-life” crisis despite the fact that he recently turned 81! He is my newest hero!
One other funny note. We met a couple that had their dog with them. They rescued him from a local pound. A bassett hound + Saint Bernard mix! Cool looking dog.
