After climbing Reynolds Peak stopped to hike this one on the drive home. Started at 3:30 and descended by headlamp. Visited all 3 competing high points. Didn't see another person the entire trip. TR is HERE.
Hot and dusty warmup on my way up Carson Pass to tag Amador County highpoint later in the day.
Hiked up the off-road vehicle trail. Was dusty. Jogged the entire way back-down. There was no register to be seen anywhere.
Nice winter snowshoe outing up the ridge to the highpoints.
Snowshoe through the woods. The end of the ridge has good views across the Mokelumne River Canyon.
Snowshoe hike through lots of fresh snow to tag the county highpoint. Trip Report
Sorry, I couldn't help thinking about the story about the "famous jumping frogs of Calaveras county" when I did this one. I used both Suttle's book and the trip reports found at cohp.org to find the three highpoint candidates. I found a register at a large cairn in the forested area which had a sheet of paper in it signed by many other county highpointers that I knew. I'll post a pic of this page.
Nice easy hike with Bryan G. We could have driven most of the way to the summit but it was a good hike anyway.
