This peak was not on my weekend itinerary. I was more focused on CoHPs and CoGPPs. But after a friend in Medford mentioned Mount Scott, and then *numerous* people I passed on Mount Thielsen mentioned Mount Scott, and then finally meeting two PCT section-hikers from Portland (Lisa Jo & Del) who offered to pay the national park entrance fee in exchange for me giving them a ride for ~15 miles... I soon found myself heading to Mount Scott.
There were several very small patches of snow remaining on the trail, but nothing to be concerned with. Very hot day. Great views from the summit.
This was the fifth of seven Top 100 peaks I summited in Oregon during a 3-1/2 day timeframe.
