Date: November 10, 2013.
Objective: Guffey Butte 3,130. See the Summit Post page for beta.
Partners: Deez and Ketchum.

Links: Read about the geology of Guffey Butte here. Celebration Park.
Fall is a perfect time to visit this area. Temps were low but still lots of flying bug-things.
Make sure you plan enough time to check out Celebration park after you add Guffey Butte to your peak list.

If you're a geology enthusiast such as myself, then there is a lot to look at. Read the link above if you'd like to know the geologic history.

Fine views await those who venture to the top. There were also lots of flies. Not the most pleasant thing.

We made our way back across the butte and then wondered around Celebration Park.
