SOTA Activation: Mount Watson, Placer County, California - August 17, 2016

Summit: 
W6/NS-147

On a family vacation to the Lake Tahoe Basin in Nevada and California, I was fortunate enough to Activate 4 peaks in 3 days.  This is a description of the Mount Watson Activation, number 2 in the series.  On this Activation I had the pleasure of meeting up with a "local" Activator from Reno, Nevada, K1LB - "Woody" Brown, so that we could do a joint Activation of Watson.

Peak 4620, OR (Cramp Butte) | February 2017

Summit: 
W7O/CN-090

Peak 4620 is a backcountry snowshoe activation that can be done in the winter if you don't mind using a GPS and are comfortable with off-trail navigation.

Eureka Peak, OR | March 2017

Summit: 
W7O/CN-043

A first activation of Eureka Peak on snowshoes turned out to be quite a workout. The basic climb description is about 2.5 miles one way and 1200 feet of gain, but the real work is off the trail with the last half mile being particularly steep. Since there is no trail to the top this would be difficult to do without snow cover.

Klickitat Mountain activation on Nov 17, 2016 by NS7P

Summit: 
W7O/CC-034

 This summit is not very noteworthy. It's best feaure is being only a few miles from Cummins Peak, allowing an easy two summit  activation. You are on a road right of way that is surrounded by forest. No views, but lots of trees to support antennas.

Rock Island Butte, MT | September, 2016

Summit: 
W7M/PS-039

0.7 miles, +750 feet, 5.2 mile approach

Rock Island Butte is in the southern portion of the Absoraka-Beartooth Wilderness.  We climbed it from the Chief Joseph Trailhead as part of an extended backpacking trip, but it is also reasonable to climb it as a day-hike.  If camping overnight, there is an excellent isolated campsite on the south side of Widewater Lake near where the trail dips closest to the lake.  There are also numerous campsites in the Widewater-Big Moose area.

Peak 7384, ID | September 2016

Summit: 
W7I/IC-159

Peak 7384 is the next SOTA Peak to the north of Granite Mountain W7I/SR-138.  It is bushwhacking at its finest with endless deadfall on the main portion of the mountain.  Limited views from the summit make this peak not the most enjoyable, but it is SOTA nonetheless and that is always good!
