Poot Peak

Poot Peak (1,230 ft), is set on China Poot Bay, directly across the waters of Kachemak Bay from the Homer Spit. Although it is not nearly as lofty as many of the neighboring heights, the Poot is one of my favorite mountains in the Kenai Range. It has character, and a charm of its very own.

Poot Peak also maintains a place in the local lore, with many folks claiming that a bear's face can be clearly distinguished on the side of the peak when it is dusted with snow. I'll let you decide for yourself. Here are a few different photos taken yesterday.

The Poot can also be seen in the sequence taken from the Perch in the previous post. Look for it in the third photograph of the series.
