Wayne County Highpoint Trip Report

Bluebell Knoll (11,328 ft)

We came in on SR-24 from the east, following the Roach's excellent directions. I must note that we almost Martinized this one by following a faint set of tracks (probably Andy's tracks from years earlier!) up the knoll and parked right between the cairn and the boulder at 6:00 pm. We decided we'd had enough for the day and camped back down in a nice basin about 2000 feet below the plateau.

We enjoyed dinner, a nice fire, cleaned up the area a bit, and then Rik pulled out the DVD player so we could watch "Starsky and Hutch" before retiring to bed. Now that's roughing it.

The next morning we departed around 7:00 am, retracing our steps until we came to a fork in the road and a sign indicating Loa was 8 miles on the left fork. The road to Loa was in excellent condition. We came across a nice group of antelope on our way out.
