Is the mosaic where the actual summit is? It certainly changed since we been there. Kinda lost its charm.

I believe so but I could not find a USGS marker anywhere to indicate where the actual highpoint is. I tried to get a picture of the mosaic but couldn't zoom out far enough with my camera to get a full shot of it.

I actually thought the HP looked very nice, especially compared with White Butte, which I just climbed.
