Governors Peak
January 19, 2020

Governors Peak as seen from the start. It is the 4th bump to the right of the vertical cliff in the center

Now visible about a mile away

From this abgle, the summit is invisible for the time being

Gaining toward the high saddle

Peak 2992 to the southeast

Looking up at the summit mass from the high saddle. The highpoint is still blocked from view

The yellow rocks and the ramp

Atop the yellow rocks, the summit is actually to the left

The final easy gradient to the top

A look back at the ascent slope

The top!

Looking down at the Castle Hot Springs resort, which had been closed for 43 years but reopened in early 2019

North view of the southern Bradshaw Mountains

Hiking down, below the cliffs of Peak 2992, a view of Lake Pleasant

Another view of the lake, from one of the saddles
