The last of 4 peaks for the weekend, then a long drive home. Not too enthused since this peak doesn’t promise much for a view. Well it holds up to its promise, no view. There’s a little view way down at the bottom of the climb along the nature loop. Would probably have a better time if you just do the nature loop walk. Quite disappointing. Why is this on the list?

Picture of JR looking for a view somewhere…no luck.
