|Date:||Wednesday, February 20, 2019|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||3047 ft / 928 m|
Ascent Trip ReportThe forecast is for heavy rain tomorrow so I wanted to get in a few more peaks today. I walked from my camper, on FR1356, the road we should have taken yesterday to get to Dome, but instead of dropping into Bulldog Canyon I continued north to between Dome and 3134. Right away I saw a fairly clear use trail going that way, it was excessively cairned so was very easily followed.
After that I continued over to 3089 and then on to 3047. It looked like it would be an easy descent going east and then south down the gully, which it was. After crossing over the last saddle I encountered another use trail, not as clear as the ascent trail. As a result I lost it shortly before reaching FR1356, which I recognized from a couple of days ago, when I climbed Top Hat Hill.
When I got back to the junction with the road to to Dome and Peak 3134 I noticed a narrow trail going west with fresh horse tracks. I followed that back, making a large loop through Bulldog Canyon around to the south border of the area and back to my camper, as shown on the GPS track.
Total time was 7:00 hours.
