Cedar Mountain
May 5, 2023

The hike starts out fully 400 feet higher than the summit of Cedar Mountain. I would descend over a thousand feet before climbing the actual mountain

About halfway up

Almost to the top

The last of the rocks just below the top

View of Comanche Point from the slopes below the top of Cedar Mountain

This is probably the highest point. Note a rock tucked into the crook of a tree stump

Looking north, I think that's Gold Hill

Comanche Point

Looking south from on top the peak, roughly where I topped out on these jumbly rocks
