Placer County Highpoint Trip Report

two points on northwest slopes of Mount Baldy (9,040+ feet)

Jerry Brekhus (of Montana) recently located a new highpoint for Placer County that is most assuredly higher than the longstanding Granite Chief (9,006 feet).

Mount Baldy lies across the state line in Nevada. The Tahoe Rim Trail shown on the USGS 24,000:1 topographic chart crosses the state boundary prior to coming fortuitously near the newly-found liner.

I wish to organize a first-ever group of "true" California county highpoint completers. Perhaps sometime in calendar 2009 would be convenient for many of us.
