Grayback Benchmark
February 8, 2020

The main summit ridge appears once I have hiked past the foothills. The summit itself is behind the foreground ridges.

The road gains to a saddle northeast of the summit.

Now on the off-road portion, this is still lower down. Two rock knobs await me. The lower one is just ahead, the higher one is on the upper skyline.

The higher rocky knob. I stayed left.

Past the higher rock knob, the summit comes in view.

Now approaching it directly.

The summit up ahead.

From the top: west view, with Greenwood Peak visible.

North view of the big open-pit mine in Bagdad. Mount Hope(less), on the Baca Float, is to the far-distant left.

The surveyor's post and guy wiring, the benchmark, a parting view, and Dick Peak.
