I have a good friend named Andy Nelson, so naturally, we had to summit this little flat topped, and meadowed high point in the area. Not much of a climb, or worthy peak, but it was fun nonetheless. We started from the end of the oiled road, that passes Navajo Lake, and went up the Virgin River Rim Trail to the saddle. Took an hour and 15 minutes to summit.
Wish I had time for Navajo Peak as well but I have to go find the Kane County High point.
Stopped by Andy Nelson peak on the way home from camping in Pine Valley. Pretty easy hike and there wasn't much bush to whack. The sun was brutal though.
Climbed with my family. Easy on the Virgin River Rim trail up to the saddle, then a challenging but short scramble up to Andy Nelson. We looked pretty well, but found no register to sign.
From Navajo campground to the Virgin Rim Trail, then up the slope. Back down via the lodge trail and the road. Views of Zion, Brian Head, Signal and the Aquarius Plateau.
Hit this after Brian Head, before Kane CoHP. Nice views through the trees.
This climb is pleasant, even the bushwhacking up the final 400'+. At the summit a small flock of sheep looked on with modest curiosity as I dug out the small summit log from the Yuban Coffee canister. Did this point after slogging around looking for the "true" Kane County highpoint.
For such alittle peak it sure is fun, great overlook of Zion, afterwords did a trail run around Navajo Lake, alot more fun than I thought it would be.
I am going to have to look around this now with much more interest! :)
One of two today - One of five this weekend
