This is great. I have climbed around a dozen of the highest peaks in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Most peaks have a "register," which is a weatherproof metal tube with paper and pencil inside. Climbers that reach the summit write comments and leave them for later climbers. The Sierra Cub removes entries when the register is full and archives them. Most registers have many entries every year. The most remarkable register I encountered was at the summit of 12,600-foot Mount Goddard. We traveled mostly off-trail on that venture. He hiked 80 miles in, and 55 miles out from our trailhead on Bishop Creek on the east side of the mountains..
40 miles from the nearest road, and 10 miles from the nearest trail, this summit gets very few human visitors. This was in 1978. The register included only around 20 entries going back to 1952.
While sitting on the top of the mountain, we were buzzed by a hummingbird. When we stood up to hike down, we spooked a golden eagle that had been perched on the mountainside down the slope. We watched as it glided a full circle around the mountain far below us.
