LOJ: Peak 2600. LOJ has saddle at 45.8249,-123.4934. The Garmin map has 40-foot intervals and the highest closed contour is the same as USGS, 2560, so LOJ is likely high at 2600. Also, Garmin has the saddle at 1600- at the same 40-foot intervals, so LOJ is likely low at 1560. Using the Garmin interval, the mean prom would be 2580-1580, or 1000, with clean being 2560-1600 or 960 feet. It was a great hike, though, on a beautiful day, and I'm doing optimistic prominence anyway. The summit is still old growth, so there was no real bushwhacking, only a lovely clover carpet on the forest floor. This may not last, however, because there is a rather new road running E-W along the summit ridge that may indicate a clearcut is in its future.
