It was good visiting my all time favorite summit! I hauled 9L of water and cached 4 at the peak for my return in the spring when I bag Rabbit as well. My hiking partner was way out of her comfort zone and felt like quitting on my a few times, but I was right there to help her along and give encouragement

Great pics. Is that Rockhouse Valley that's visible in the 5th one?

Good show!. It is one of my top 10 favorite hikes too. Good luck with the Rabbit summit. We did a one day blast to Rabbit peak from the east side. The 13,000 ft+ gain+loss was probably the toughest hike I ever did. Neat factoid about Villager peak. The loose white marble laying around on the surface near the summit is the oldest rock in the park. Villager, Rabbit and the Santa Rosas are most geologically active mountains in the Continental US. It's easy to see why!

The 5th pic is of Clark valley. The beginning of Rock house valley is in the far right.

rockhopper: yes I meant the thing on the right. After looking at Google Earth I think it's the flat at the base of Dawn's Peak. Not sure if that's considered part of Rockhouse or not.

Scooter: I did Granite a couple weekends ago with Rocko and that nearly killed me.
(OK that's an exaggeration. But I'm still not ready for Villager)

Great pics! How are you storing the water? I wanted to do the same but still considering how to cache them for long term-6+ months.

That looks like a great trip. Happy to hear any tips you have on convincing my spousal "hiking partner" to bag Rabbit smile

Looks like a fun trip. The Santa Rosa Mountains have so much to explore. The pinyon pines on the summits are always a welcome site.

@tommy750 I don't think it is the type of trip that will be fun if you need to convince the spouse to join EEK!
