On today’s wander I stopped for a second to size up these photos with my eyeballs. Lone Mountain is about six hundred foot tall, very small when looking to the west at it’s big brothers and sisters. Apparently, millions of years of geologic time and earthquakes pushed this little pimple up, then it stopped growing.
The white or lighter lines running along the flat spine are foot trails. I have no idea how many people make the ascent each year but it must be thousands. You can see people up there if they are close enough to the edge I guess, they look really tiny way up there. I tried the ascent a few years ago, not gonna happen.
