Second Peak Of Five-Peak Weekend Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2011
Ken and I summited Mount Annie soon after summiting another nearby P2K peak: Tunk Mountain. We would go on to Bodie Mountain that evening, then Buckhorn Mountain and White Mountain the following day. Mount Annie was an enjoyable forest walk along an old road. We spent nearly 30 minutes exploring the summit area, including locating the true summit (i.e. highest point) and examining the old leftover lookout remnants. The most disappointing thing was not having outward views from the summit due to thick forests.
