Boneyback Peak (12/31/2009)

I had a fun time on this hike. My hike description likely reflects that. Boneyback Peak far exceeded my expectations. Hiking Boneyback Peak truly summarizes all of my prior years of exploration within the Sierra Ancha Mountains. It was so cool to literally see everything from one summit. The upper rock outcroppings are insane! The pinyon pine was a welcome and unexpected surprise. One hillside along the hike was covered with live oak. I love oak trees. I highly recommend this hike. You wont regret it.

An added bonus to this trip was a specific name on the summit registry. A couple months back, I posted a new forum topic titled "USGS Survey Markers". Thanks to a very informative post by mikehikes, we all learned the interesting story of Bob Martin. A little further research on my end revealed that Bob had hiked all of the benchmark summits I have visited this season, including one particularly remote mountain that I am planning on doing within the next month. Thanks again mikehikes, for sharing the story of your friend and for the helpful information you provided.
