recent peak ideas from other haz members
these two make for a good combo, starting at the same trailhead
went up lone mountain first
a surprisingly good trail to a nice summit area
went across the road and started up a bike trail, then bushwhacked to the correct route
again, decent trail the entire way to the ridge and then the peak
good views of the area
signed the register but chose not to dig for the benchmark
discussed options from there, bypassed 2959 to make a loop going over 2933 and down the ridgeline
a bit of a scree slide down from 2972, off trail to 2933, then a steeper slide off the northeast side of 2933
the rest of the ridgeline was much easier, and it would be better to go up this way
plenty of cairns on this portion
enjoyed the loop
will bring a hiking pole next time for the descent
three peaks and a good time hiking with john and denny
imported both routes but for some reason couldn't follow the track on route scout
will have to figure that out and practice in town
thanks for hitting these peaks with me, guys - always enjoy your company
