Ascent Trip Report

I followed Ken Jones TR from (thanks Ken). When I got to the second windmill where he stopped, I drove around the water tank and continued on the road track for another mile up to the south saddle next to the summit. Nice day except for the wind. Nice views except all directions looked similar. When leaving, 6 antelope wanted to play and they ran along side me at up to 30 mph about 100 yds off to my right side. When I slowed to make a turn, they came across my front and went back up towards the summit. Beautiful animals.
