Ascent Trip Report

Started from Henrys Fork Campground where I met Dean Molen and Dennis Poulin who had just finished all of the Utah County highpoints. Hiked with my son Ryan and 5 other motley HPers Roy, Bill, Rick, Jack, and Merle to Dollar Lake and camped overnite. Started before sunrise and hiked through Gunsight Pass up the shortcut across Anderson Pass and then to the summit. Had perfect weather for the hike. Took the shortcut down the "toilet bowl" on the way back which saved us about 2 hours. Very rocky scree and not very good footing. Camped at Dollar Lake one more night and then hiked out and had lunch at Sills Cafe in Mountain View, WY. It was a great group of guys to hike with and a beautiful climb. Headed to Panorama Point, Nebraska after lunch. HP #18.
