Other peaks climbed on this trip

11.29.19....Opal Mtn, Nelson HP. (Not Benchmark) and Arch Back Peak. The Black Friday Peakbagging Honeymoon Jimmy never wanted! 3 Peak Extravaganza in the Eldorado Mtns near Nelson, NV. 3 diff Trailheads, 6 miles and nearly 2,000’ gain. Opal peak was the coldest at nearly 5,000’ above sea level with windchill in the 20’s. We hiked an ran that (Mtn road) 5k distance in :49 min.
Next was Nelson HP (not BM) which had a flowing creek all the way to the summit! 1.6 miles, 700’ gain in 1:10hr.
Last was Arch Back. 1.3 in 33min. It had a giant Arch Bridge on the ridge along the way.
This Mtn Range is extraordinary with spectacular 360 views of the Colorado River and rugged area mountains......and in our own backyard! The wind was vicious and cold. 50mph gusts on the summits tossed us around like rag dolls. I made us Thanksgiving leftover sub Sammies and pumpkin pie for a reward. Thank you my love. You are a great sport!
