Elk Mountain - NE Contour

This heavily logged bump on the northeast end of Elk Mountain officially falls within the same closed-contour elevation as two other bumps on the mountaintop and could be considered a candidate for the true summit because of that reasoning.

However, with one of the other two closed-contours located immediately southwest that is obviously higher when looking at both points, this NE Contour can only be considered as a false summit at best.

The other two closed-contours are less obvious for which is the true summit.
