Fossil Mountain is a spectacular mountain, especially when viewed from the west side of the Teton range. It stands up like a shark fin. Unfortunately, it was a hazy day due to wildfire smoke. Unfortunately, I think that will be the case until the snow falls.
The climb up was beautiful with lots of wild flowers. Once I left the trail to the Wind Cave, I didn’t see anyone else. That’s one of the nice things about SOTA peaks in the area: most of them are obscure peaks that see very little human traffic. A lovely way to escape for the day.
I had 22 contacts from the summit, 20 on CW and 2 on SSB, with 5 watts. Being on a mountain top sure does help to get the signal out. Thanks to all the chasers.
