Upper Canyon Creek, Peak 402355
Elevation approx. 2650 m
June 20, 1999

A week after hiking up the north fork of Upper Canyon Creek, we returned to hike up the south fork. The creekbed was wearisome, but it reached an picturesque valley. From the valley we were able to ascend an unnamed peak lying 2 km northeast of Mount Howard.
