Ascent Trip Report

Parked car along paved road just outside Snowshoe Springs Campground (elevation 6619'), 2 miles E of where Hwy 89 meets Hwy 88. Walked N up Horsethief Canyon, quite steep at first. Just after passing spring on plateau, nagivated east up, down, and up, then S to Cary Peak. Saw parked truck just W of Hidden Canyon, before going down to cross it; they said they came up from the dirt road going out of 89 just N of 88. The last few hundred yards were severely burnt, probably from Wookfords fire last year. Left can and my card for a register
