Mount P.O.W./M.I.A. is a mountain that has been dedicated to all the soldiers that are or have been given the status of Prisoner of War or Missing in Action (POW/MIA). There is a POW/MIA flag placed atop of Mount POW/MIA and is replaced annually during Memorial weekend in May. This mountain was recently named by the efforts of John Morrissey, a Vietnam veteran from Patterson, New York. The mountain was formally named by USGS in 1999 and is currently the highest, largest natural monument in the world.
After summitting in just over an hour, Jesse and I decided to explore the terrain. We set out sights on Goat Rock. This is a steep, narly piece of rock residing next to West Twin Peak. We followed some goat trails and then broke away towards a gulley between Goat Rock and West Twin. Although we didn't summit, it was neat to recon the area.
