Ascent Trip ReportAfter my error yesterday, I headed back to the Red Cliffs area to bag the Cottonwood Canyon Wilderness HP. I ended up getting delayed when I came upon two dogs roaming along the dirt road. One was a pure bred German Shepard and the other a small terrier type dog. With no person or vehicle in sight I stopped, the German Shepard was wearing a collar and I could see tags so I did my best to gain his trust in order to see if a phone number was on the tag. It took a full hour before he allowed me to hold his collar. Nonetheless I called the number and the owner was in Las Vegas; she said she left the dog with her friend. I gave detailed instructions on where the dogs were so she could relay that to her friend. Anyway, long story shorter, the friend did come and collect the dogs.
The hike to Cottonwood Canyon Wilderness HP was very easy albeit later started than planned. Have just hiked Point 4938 yesterday, I believe Point 4938 is a more rewarding hike, but I needed to bag a wilderness highpoint, so this one is done.
