Scott Butte

We took a quick stroll to the top of Scott Butte the day after we climbed Rainbow Mountain.

Date: May 21, 2017.

Objective: Scott Butte, 6,161ft.

Stats: .7 miles, 325ft gain in 20 minutes round trip. Class 1. Strava track.

Partners: Deez, Lego Master, Josh and Jenn.

Gear notes: N/A.

Diamond Peak.

The morning after our climb of Rainbow Mountain, I was feeling pretty good and wanted to do another peak. Since we still faced a four and a half hour drive home, I didn't want to get up hella early, or get rolling out too late. Scott Butte was right off the highway and looked to be an easy hike to stretch the legs.

Copper Mountain.

Josh and Jenn said they were in for the quick hike so we drove Peterson Creek Road to the east side of the butte.

The only way to go was up, so that's what we did.

Hop a rock here, dodge some sagebrush there... Hey look, cacti! 

Cactus almost in bloom.

Saddle Mountain.

We traversed the flat area that is the top, took some pictures then headed down.

Next stop, Pickles Place!
