Ascent Trip Report

This was a truly trivial ascent of a county high point that Eric wanted to do. I took only my GPS and actually did the brief, easy in my flip-flops.

"Boulder Top" was marked on my GPS topo on a low hill by a corral on my map, but was clearly lower than nearby "Bluebell Knoll" once we got there. So we piled back in the vehicle, and drove the road to the south of the other location, which peakbagger shows as the true location of Boulder Top.

As a rule I am not into this kind of peakbagging but since there is really no hard way to do this summit there is little choice if you want to get all the UT county high points.
