We met at a turnout on the Horseshoe Meadow Road at Little Cottonwood Creek.
Edge Of The World Peak from where we met. We will start the hike from further up the road.
Cori, Kathy, Rachel, Sooz and Joe, me at the start of the hike.
We past by this solar panel near the start of the hike. Checking the map, the area from here and all the way to the peak is in the Last Chace Meadow Research Natural Area, the panel may have something to do with that.
Crossing the creek near Last Chace Meadow.
Just after the creek crossing we hiked up this steep slope to the first high point.
Looking back at Round Valley and Trail Peak.
Taking a short break on the slope.
Hiking on towards the first high point.
When I got to the top, Sooz was already up on this rock pile.
View to the west from on top of the rocks, we took a lunch break here.
Zoomed in on Horseshoe Meadows.
Trailmaster Peak, Peak 12,525 and Cirque Peak.
Mount Langley and Woolyback Peak.
Closer view of Mount Langly.
The mountain ladies. Rachel, Cori, Sooz and Kathy.
Another shot of the ladies.
Hiking on after the lunch break.
Downed tree on the flat section.
On the last uphill to the peak. There was a lot of nice looking trees on this hike.
Almost up to the easy section that lead us to the high point of the peak.
When we reached the high point, we got a great view of Owens Lake and a section of the Owens Valley.
Hanging out on the peak.
We only knew this peak as Peak 11,062, but the the register referred to it as Edge Of The World Peak, sounds good to me. This was the first time any of us hiked this one.
Group shot on the peak.
View to the south with Olancha Peak in the distance.
Timosea Peak and Owens Lake to the east.
Closer view of Timosea Peak, one mean little peak.
Wonga Peak to the northeast.
Mount Langley to the west.
We hiked out to a point to the north to check out the view from there.
From the point we got a good view of Wonga Peak and the canyon with Little Cottonwood Creek. On the right is the hang gider launch at Walt's Point.
Another view of Wonga Peak and some of the switchbacks on the Horseshoe Meadow Road.
View to the west.
Starting the hike down.
We came upon this big bear foot print.
Heading down to the flat area.
Cori and Kathy.
Starting down the steep section, it was a lot more fun going down.
Sooz up ahead, almost back to the creek crossing.
The others close behind.
Sooz and Racel at the creek.
Kathy, Cori and Sooz.
Back at the solar panel, the hike is almost over. Fun hike with a great group of people.
