Looking north towards a reservoir
Looking north from my high point, you can see Stratton Reservoir, and
the road I had followed to try to find a snow-free way to the summit.
I don't know the history of either. By this time I was
extremely tired from the climb and the relative lack of oxygen, so
I didn't spend as much time exploring as I normally would. The dam
on the reservoir looked rather old, so my guess is that it is no longer
maintained. The road may have been originally used to service the
reservoir. There was also an antenna tower a little further up the
road (to the left) that can't be seen in the photo. I would guess
that the antenna is still in use, as it looked to be fairly new.
Beyond the lake you can see another peak, which may be higher than
the one I was attempting. If I had seen it from my approach, I may have
attempted it instead. From this picture, there appears to be a snow-free
path the entire way.
