Solano County Highpoint Trip Report
Mount Vaca (2,819 ft)

We took the standard route following Mix Canyon Road to the gate, which was locked.
We found the highest natural ground mentioned in previous reports
southwest of Tower 20. I didn't do any field work but I have to wonder if that
outcrop isn't in Napa County. Robert Greene mentions another outcrop nearby
which his GPS indicated IS in Napa County. I picked my way through the
underbrush to that outcrop and got poison oak for my trouble.
According to the topo, the county line runs right over the summit of Mount Vaca.
The problem is, the summit of Mt. Vaca no longer exists, having been shaved off
for the communication towers.
