The snow field has even less snow than shown here so don’t plan on sliding down. Lots of rock exposed in the snow field. It would be much easier going back to the Saddle and going down as you went up. Rocks in the snow make in dangerous to slide down the remaining snow. 1st photo is of team members on August 6. Second photo is of AirMed in front of glacier/snowfield. Click on photos to enlarge. Glen – August 4, 2014Read more »
TERT – our 31st year! High Camp and Trail Head are on the mountain and are there Friday evenings through Sunday mornings until late September. The Trail Head members are usually in the Trail Head shacks to answer any questions, encourage you to sign the hiking list, and help if there are problems. The High Camp team usually hangs out at the Emerald Lake Shelter during the day and helps with medical problems or other issues. They have radio communications with both Trail Heads. Say hi to the team when you go up there.
Last weekend we had AirMed come to the Shelter at Emerald Lake to help with a pt. Later that night we worked with Utah County Search and Rescue to look for a female who was having medical issues on the Timpooneke side. The pt went down with the Utah County Mounted Posse. All worked out in both case.
TERT added a new TERT Leader, James Weeks. Jim has been with the team for a number of years and has participated a number of times in Trail Head and in High Camp. He will be a good addition to our leadership. Glen 8/13/14Read more »
