Peak 9947, Cow Hill & Boardshack Knoll
August 16, 2014

Peak 9947

Sign at the road junction

The old track that I hiked

Nearing the top of the first ridge

The summit across the way

Southwest view toward Peak 9913

Almost at the top

The top is in the trees

Looking back toward the ridge I ascended

Hiking down. My truck is barely visible down there. Peak 9913 is in view

Peak 9913, a.k.a Cow Hill

Lower road through the forest

Road starts to break into the open and get steeper

The steepest part where the road leaves the trees and enters onto the upper ridge

And the summit isn't that far away

Stick Scott at the top

Looking south toward Mount Baldy

Boardshack Knoll

Initial hike into the trees

Approaching the top...


And we're there

Returning to my truck
