I looked up map and picked a small peak to go. Map didn't say the name of this summit, but when I arrived at parking lot and turned on my GPS, my map on GPS already had trail for the summit. Then I realized this is Junction Hill.

I parked at the winter gate. I couldn't find trail so I just walked toward the SE ridge from the winter gate.

On the way back, I run into a group from CORA, so I decided to take a voyeur shot.
