Along the Elk Mountain Summit Block

An unexpectedly nice path along the western edge of the summit block on Elk Mountain in Charon's Garden Wilderness, OK. The summit boulder is to the right, about 30-35 feet higher. Don't be fooled by this easy looking trail: Access to it is by bushwhacking from the class 1 Elk Mountain Trail through a boulder-strewn field interlaced with poison ivy and greenbriar. Imaged in April 2008.
