November 13, 2022


Hiking up Peak 2620, that's not the highpoint yet

The high ridge, the highest point to the right

Big rock on the ridge

The summit up ahead

Look over at Peak 3318 from the top of Peak 2620

Peak 3430 and its tower

The top of Peak 3430

On top of Peak 3430, now looking east at a slightly lower bump

On that lower bump, looking back at the higher rise and the tower

Cottonwood Hill

On the high ridge, the summit comes into view

The rocky summit. Will I be able to tag it?

The top rock. Yeah, it was easy to tag. That lower rock is a perfect step. I wonder how long it's been there like that. 500 years? 5000 years?
