Wing Mtn. (CS-008) & Mt. Elden (AE-017)

Wing Mountain was almost identical to A1 Mountain except that it was more heavily wooded. Beyond that, the two summits were almost identical. Mt. Elden, for a drive up activation, was a miserable summit. I think the road was only about 4 miles, but it was a rough 4 miles. I had my 1 ton dually, which was not the truck for the trip and it let me know that every step of the way. By the time I got to the top just about everything was rattled loose, including my internal organs. Once at the top, the wind was so strong that at times, I was unable to stand against it. I ended up cutting the activation short because the wind kept pulling the radio away. There was a nice stand of white birch trees (at least that is what they looked like to me), which I thought was very cool as I have not seen trees like that in decades.
