I enjoyed reading this one Bob, and I look forward to hiking it; however, one thing you might want to check on....According to John Kirk's website, "listsofjohn.com" this link: http://listsofjohn.com/PeakStats/Climbers.php?Id=47614
is the actual highpoint of Calico Hills and is higher than the one the 'MyTopo' link connects to on the Red Cap (Turtlehead Junior) page.
I only point that out because you state in the narrative that Red Cap is the highest peak in Calico Hills.
Thanks, Tracy. Interesting that you mention this other peak; I put up a page for it the other day! New Peak
Peak 4987, New Peak, is more limestone than sandstone, and a basin separates it from the concentration of the Calico Hills, and I think that's why my source (who, to make matters more complicated, is the source mentioned on the Lists of John page!) does not include New Peak as part of the Calico Hills but rather as a peak in Calico Basin. So for now, I'm sticking to my guns!
Thanks for the heads-up.
Sounds reasonable! I like that other page too. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
