To celebrate the winter solstice, I asked a couple of friends to hike Cervidae Peak with me. It's notoriously steep and it's also one of four peaks in the "grand slam" group that Tom Lopez came up with to help train for Idaho's 12ers. It's been on my list for a while so I was eager to give it a try. It took us several hours but that includes a 45 minute detour because my friend's dog ran after a deer and didn't want to come back (I found her eventually!).
Anyway, here are some pictures. It was beautiful and it's a great way to stretch your legs, pretty close to town. Just remember... it is steep!
