Ascent Trip Report

After doing Dixie, the temp had gotten too hot for my comfort level so rather than go after Adams Peak or State Line peak, my wife and I made the drive to Shaffer mountain. The road was decent and when we got to the gate, we found it open, so we drove the rest of the way to the summit area. It was 93 degrees at the summit and the communications area was loaded with ladybugs. I found no benchmark or register but the views, despite being a bit hazy were nice. Lots of concrete and we didn't stay long nor was I tempted to go over to get Observation peak. It was time to head for Susanville and a nice motel after having camped out the night before.
