|Peak:||Mt. Buckskin (13er)|
|Date of Info:||06/25/2022|
Summited both the old Buckskin summit and the new LiDAR summit which is stated as the Northwest Summit on this site. I only summited the old Buckskin summit a few years ago so I needed to go back to get its newly discovered true summit.
Seen from my picture the red arrow is the old summit and the blue arrow is Northwest Summit (LiDAR true summit). You can clearly see that the Northwest bump is higher.
Summer conditions. NOAA's forecast was death and destruction however, was a bluebird morning.
There were more cars at Kite Lake TH than at Park Meadows Mall. It's been a while since I've been around such large crowds climbing a peak.
Just a few minutes after I started I filled my boot up with water as I slipped off an icy rock.
As I came over a bump on the descent I came face to face with a goat. Nothing surprising there, but was when a couple of seconds a coyote came strolling up (circled). The coyote and goat eyed each other as the coyote continued up the hill. Everyone kept cool and we all went our ways.
