What a beautiful sight to see.

For my first day on my road trip across the country I decided I wanted to do something big for the first night instead of staying in my vehicle that Iv converted.

Mount Yonah was absolutely beautiful to camp on. The meadows at the top were very clean, with many past campsites from other campers…

Good hike and ground

Great shorter backpacking trip. Good for beginners though hike up is steep in some places. A Boy Scout troop was a little loud and running everywhere when it got dark but stopped around 9. Other groups around 20 yards from us at the top. Beautiful sunset.

Great, breathtaking views!

You can camp here but there are no fire rings or tent pads. But the views are worth it!
