Description

I hiked to the summit of Mount Lindo and Point 7965 from the corner of South Turkey Creek Road and Ross Road near Tiny Town, Colorado.  To my surprise there was a trail that started just to the north of Tomari's Coffeehouse and led me all the way to a broad flat saddle between Mount Lindo and Point 7965.  From the saddle, you simple hike and scramble to the summit of each peak in opposite directions.  I didn't start hiking until 4:30 pm, so it was pretty dark by the time I got to the top of Point 7965.  The summit of Point 7965 has numerous buildings, towers, and signs warning of excessive radio frequencies for humans.
