Carbon County High Point Trip Report
west ridge of Medicine Bow Peak (11,900 ft)
Date: October 21, 1995
Author: Dave Olson
I got a relatively late start going to the peak and hiking up the peak;
from the wrong parking lot, too. Another party overtook me.
I got to the top of Medicine Bow Peak after them. There was snow and big rocks on top.
From the top I paced west and then sectioned the presumed HP of Carbon county.
Then I continued southwest on a trail - sometime bare, sometimes crusty snow.
The sun set and it got dark while I was descending the far end of the mountain.
I hitched a short ride from two Air Force men from WV and Cheyenne AFB who were
returning from hunting.
