Our final goal for the trip was to hike (not drive) to the top of Handies Peak. The trailhead is at 11600 ft and the summit is 14048. We had tried it in 2009 but didn't make it. This year we got an early start, had better weather and trekking poles to help Joan's footing. We weren't fast (5 hours up, 5 more back down) but we made it without much difficulty. 3 for 3!
