BCP006 Hailstone Butte
Yep, this was a cap hunt NOT for the easily tiring souls. Took us about 2 hours to get to the top and about 1/2 way up the weather socked in. We had fog, rain and the Butte's namesake as well. The moss-covered rockfields were especially slippery, too. Had a nice chat with the lookout keeper and he even invited us inside for a spell to warm up/dry out. Sweeeet!
We started the trek from the SW and followed a dry creekbed most of the way. For safety's sake and due to the weather, we ended up following the track back down, going all the way north around the Butte. Total trip length for this one was 13.49 km.
Geez, we must be nuts!
Thanks, I think!
