After finishing Mount Burke, we still had lots of time and just enough energy to bag another peak. Our original plan was Raspberry Ridge, but seeing how much snow up there, we decided to do Junction Hill. Park at the winter closure gate at Highway 541 / 940 Junction. Walk down the highway for a few hundred of meters, then head directly up the grassy hill. Once you get to the first major high point, the objective still appears far away... And you have to dip down into the trees. The north facing slope often holds lots of snow, and as a result, our boots got soaked.
The summit offers fine view towards Elk Range and High Rock Range on the Continental Divide, as well as, Mount Head and Holy Cross Mountain. It's my first time in this area, so every view is new to me. We can also see Mount Burke and Livingstone Range towards SW. We met a huge group on the summit.
We decided to go down via another ridge. This ridge is more pleasant than the one we came up. There're no up-and-downs and we decent in a steady pace. Near the end of the ridge, head down towards ridge on a huge grassy slope to avoid cliff bands, and you will be back in half an hour. Our round trip time is 4 hours.
