Ascent Trip Report

Slept overnight at the Devil's Lake Campground parking lot but got a leisurely start up the trail in the morning. LOTS of cars in the parking lot, so knew there would be a crowd on the mountain. I left
at 8:35, reached the summit in 2:50, 42 min. on top and down in 2:23. Lots of high school kids on the trail. Must have been a last outing before school. Hiked Mt. Bachelor later in the afternoon.
