Mt Sneffels log Sunday Aug 7


Randy K5RHD and I activated Mt Sneffels on Sunday August 7. The route up Sneffels was quite busy. There were at least 20 other hikers along the trail that day. I set up my Alpha EZ Military vertical antenna on a north facing spur only 20ft away from the actual summit and only 6ft below.

We got some light rain on the way down, but no lightning. It seemed to take longer going down the scree slope than going up.
