... and the things you find in them over the years. Found some cool knick knacks like a plastic lizard in the Lizard Peak register and a live scorpion in a register in the badlands EEK! . Recently found a cool glass trinket.

Is it a real peak if some of these signatures are missing:


If you have hiked the Santa Rosa's this distinctive handwriting is in all the registers (although this one isn't from the Santa Rosa range):


Some people are everywhere:


Some of the list makers:






Guidebook authors:




Other members on here:





People on the job:




Someone very lost put this on the wrong peak:


Anyone else have any interesting ones? These are just a couple I thought to take a picture of at the time.

I usually forget to look for registers. But I just got back from Warm Springs camp in Death Valley where I signed one. Not a summit but it has a register I couldn't miss as it's in a big metal box right outside the house. I only had to look back a couple pages to find an interesting entry. Not sure how legible this will be on a computer screen, but it's a guy talking about the time he stayed at Barker Ranch. In 1969 😳

I always sign if I find a register. I usually flip though to find rare autographs or people I know. I sometimes take photos of some of the pages. It often depends on how old and fragile the register is. If I find one that is really old and crumbly, I try not to disturb it. On Sierra Club peaks, I think they periodically collect them and archive the signatures. I find registers fun, but I think there are some purists who view them as litter. There was a streak of register shredding going on the San Gabriels a few years ago. One of my favorite registers was on Cobblestone Mountain in Los Padres which had a fancy custom aluminum box. I think the Sierra Club has only made a few of these and they are often on 14ers. Cool post!

Remembering Ranger Steve - "The Desert bites back" was my favorite quote from him and stays in my mind on every trip as cholla or agave or bees or something always manages to make me bleed. RIP Steve.

Great topic Buford!...I have been lazy the last several years and stopped taking pictures of them, even signing many of them.

Some are not quite a full "summit" register and are just a checkbox on a list


Some are on the wrong summit (large for readability)


And there are the hard to find (repeat of on from Buford)
