Mule Canyon North...the Steamboat!

The most prominent feature of the frontal range above the city is the formation called The Lady... from side angles, it is known as the Steamboat. At 7,000' it stands out proudly above the 4400' of the city.

There are a number of approaches, all off trail. Deadman's Canyon on the north is the easier approach. Mule Canyon North is an inviting potential access from the south... can we get there that way... I do not know? This will be an exploratory hike to find out what lurks up and around that inviting drainage.

Class II Canyoneering adventure... all off trail... Exploratory... the route is unknown... Strenuous... Demanding... Not for Beginners.

We may not make it to the top... but, it should be interesting!

Note: I will check out our options for approach; if we can not get there from Mule we will instead trek up Deadman and peak out from there, doing a review of Mule from above!

    Hiking with Michal has always been challenging to me, plenty of fun also. All the climbing and scrambling in the rain... well, we ended up look like just climbed out of the city sewage system! Picked up a bunch of copper ore, which did not give much relief to my tender feet. Walking back to the car on Scenic Drive with an elk antler strapped to the backpack turned plenty of heads....

    the Steamboat sank... into Hell's Hole... we escaped, climbing up and over the Devil's Backbone... wet, muddy... tenderfooted... all in all, a great day of play!!
