Peak 9463  Sucess!

August 20

Kim and I were originally going somewhere else, but the highway through Spanish Fork Canyon was closed due to flooding and an accident. We did bring maps of the area so headed instead towards the Gray Head Peak area since I was familiar with it, having visited in 1998.

The heavy rain stopped right when we got into the area of the highway pass on the Argyle Ridge, it stopped raining. We turned on to FR 324, but it was too muddy to drive so we parked there.

We hiked north along FR 324 and FR 114 to its end and then headed north along a faded trail to the summit of a hill where there was a good place to camp. The sunset was really spectacular.

In the morning, Kim and I headed up the ridge to the north over several sub-peaks to the ranked Peak 9463. There were some nice bristlecone pines in the area. Some parts of the route were steep, but it wasn't too bad.

After a brief stop at Peak 9463, we headed down to the saddle and climbed Gray Head Peak. The views were really nice and it was an interesting peak.

We then headed back to camp, packed up, and hiked back to the highway.
