ASH CREEK BUTTE
Fossil Rock Glacier Geological Area
Ash Creek Butte part of the Klamath National Forest occupies a 300 acre site and is the remains of an ancient rock glacier. It sits in a north facing glacier carved bowl or cirque. Surprise Lake is a surprise and on the way to the top!
Along the way...
Ed Stuhl, for almost 50 years was a caretaker, steward of the mountain and an artist. He painted many of the wildflowers on Mt. Shasta. The Steer's head was extra special to Ed since it was uncommon to find. We saw quite a few of these on our hike.
On the top...
The top of Ash Creek Butte is 8,378 ft. with incredible views all around. There's a geo cache stashed up there for you geocachers.
Heading back down..
It was a wonderful day of hiking with old friends and meeting new friends. Thank you Steve Lewis for the great hike!
