Lone Mountain was another peak I'd seen on a number of occasions and after my Sheep Mesa hike it seemed like the thing to do. I parked in the widest spot along FR1096 just adjacent to the peak and set off uphill. Boy was this one steep... 480 feet in elevation gain in less than .3 mile... my Achilles were begging for mercy well before the top.
I didn't follow the most direct route up because it looked too steep, meandering to the left a bit until the rocky area near the end when I headed straight for the summit. On the way down I figured I'd take the most direct route, which worked out pretty well.
No summit log and I didn't have another one to leave so I guess I'll be back soon.
Photos coming soon.
A campfire must be extinguished by drowning it with water, stirring with a shovel, and repeating that process until the campfire is cold to the touch. A campfire is still a danger if it has any trace of heat, and must not be left or abandoned. Wildfires can begin by abandoned campfires that rebuild heat on windy days and then blowing embers ignite surrounding grasses and brush.
