Lone Mountain / Up East, Down South - 2/29/12
Arriving at the peak, we found an officer of the law. We spoke and joked with him for several minutes and found out that he was perusing the surrounding landscape looking for kids who had escaped a youth camp in nearby mountains. They were probably headed this way about then and the officer was looking to head them off at the pass.
At least, three hikers left after the Lone Mountain climb. The six hikers that remained got into their cars for a trip across CC215 to tackle nearby Eagle Peak.
