May 22, 2015

The summit is to the right, as viewed from the forest road about a mile to the west

The initial hike up the old jeep track

Surmounting a ridge, the summit is in view

An old dead tree marks the top

Stick Scott and Humphreys Peak in back

West view: the Hochderffer Hills (left), Kendrick Peak (center) and the Thomas Lake Crater (right)

Northwest view of Saddle Mountain, where I nearly sliced off my finger five years ago

North view at some lower cinder hills, with clouds and virga

Walker Lake Crater: View of the crater rim from the forest road, FR-151

Hiking up an old road through the trees

Now on the rim, following the trail amid meadows and trees

On the highpoint rim, looking back at the presumed highpoint

Looking down into Walker Lake

Another shot of the "lake", and the highpoint rim behind it
