 Weekend at Burnie's Part II   

Recall my last trip report - from Raleigh Peak - also in the Buffalo Creek burn scar. That's "weekend at burnie's ONE"....

Either way - I swear I had looked at pine valley before and not seen anything like this Point 8164 before. (Is this Raspberry Ridge? No one seems to agree strongly in map world)

And the approach up from the trailhead featured a cool series of narrow stairs.


And once busting off trail -- it was hardly any hardcore bushwhacking needed.


I do like a fresh highpoint. I keep surprising myself finding stuff that is pretty local.


In above photo - I just went up across burn area and followed the edge of the woods at top. But then I later see a trail that approaches from hard right around the bend? i was not aware of that at the time.

and this one looked like a good enough outing and the views back on Evans and Kenosha Pass area was better than expected.

I had hoped to explore the rock formations on south side of this whole thing but I didn't launch until 2pm yesterday. So covering the 5miles+ was enough for me.
