John writes: Summit Mountain offers great horizons in most directions. For you summertime activators this summit is attractively cool at 7,777 feet.

We had hoped to reach the top of Bill Williams Mountain but it was gated due to fire danger – plus the location may have precluded camping and even transmitting due to the huge commercial transmitter site. We kept looking for another activation site option and ended up navigating on a 4x4 trail (in our too tall, too long, too low, and too heavy camper van) to the top of Summit Mountain.

In the pine forest at the top we found a great site where we spent the night and were able to get an early predawn start on meteor scatter.

After the activation we drove directly to SoCal in temperatures as high as 119* -- we soon missed this cool mountain perch.

Driving directions: Almost like a labyrinth there are dirt roads everywhere, so plan your route carefully in advance.
