Ascent Trip Report

I thought I found an access route in to the summit of Edson Butte. The road took me through an active logging operation that was shut down for the weekend and then the road was abandoned. I bushwhacked the last half mile of the GPS track before turning around. I knew I wouldn't be able to get across the creek I could hear down below. I will be back for this one...
