Waypoint 1
Hidden Falls
 Elevation: 6360  Feature: Falls

Waypoint 2
Big Cottonwood Overlook

Destination
Mount Raymond
 Elevation: 10241  Feature: Peak
Notes: Mt Raymond can easily be climbed in tandem with its neighbor to the east, Gobblers Knob. From its summit there are awesome views of rugged geology everywhere. The view to the south, across Big Cottonwood is not too bad either.
