The highlight was the Wedding Cake Peak climb, which ended up being about six miles round trip and about 3000 feet of elevation gain from camp. Carl Hlavenka, Marcie, and Sam summited, with Asami Kasuya getting honorary summit status for an outstanding performance on her first backcountry peak climb. Carl went on to climb 8994 foot Thompson Peak for a two peak day.
Canyon Creek is a beautiful, lush canyon with several waterfalls and surrounded by high granite peaks, and is one of the more popular trailheads in the Trinity Alps.
