June 21, 2016: Silver Star Mountain, Washington

This wasn't a normal Silver Star Mountain outing. I went in from the southern trailhead, and after summiting SSM, I explored Sturgeon Rock (west of the summit) and Pyramid Rock (south). Unfortunately, my digital camera lost its mind and died about two hours into this hike; the last 33 photos are from my not-especially-awesome cell phone camera.

Here's a map.
