This was the last peak (and smallest) of a 21 day hiking road-trip with Heather. We had originally planned to do Moapah and Mormon, but a storm the previous night dumped tons of snow. There is a new summit register placed by Gerry and Jennifer Roach. We had to outrun an approaching thunderstorm on the way down. Other peaks we did on this trip include:
Pinos, Sawmill, Aliso, Signal, Castle Dome, Ajo, Miller, Superstition BM, Turtle HP, Old Woman, Granite, Cinder Cone 3894', Avawatz, Pahrump, Pinto, Nelson HP, Panamint Butte, Canyon Point, Shadow, Grapevine, Wahguye, Palmer, Stirling, Northshore, Black Mesa, Hamblin, and Little Virgin.
We also visited Heiroglyphic Canyon, Marble Canyon, Cottonwood Canyon, Sheep Spring Canyon, Cadiz Dunes, Mojave Lava Tube, Parowan Gap Dinosaur tracks and numerous pertroglyph sites.
Nice little hike. Good one for breaking in new boots!
Park on the east end. Head towards the first saddle on your right. You will notice a small wood stake. Look up the hill and see the 4x4 post. Head there. Then cut south to the next 4x4 post. Keep the posts to your left, there are several more on the trail up.
Lots of interesting rocks and exposed quartz seams.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
