Ascent Trip Report

After hiking up Mt. Ingalls in the morning, I rode my motorcycle back up to Lassen NP to hike up Lassen Peak. I had wanted to be there at 4:30 pm because that is when I had seen the work crew finishing on Tuesday, but didn't get there until almost 5. The crew was still in the parking lot and told me that the trail was open and I had the mountain all to myself. It was cool and windy on top but the air was clear, smokey down in the valleys. I still had to ride 2 hours back to my camper, and knew it would be cold so I didn't waste any time. Took a few pictures on top, ate some snacks and then headed back down.

Total time 2:12, 1:05 up, 48 min. down.
Forth PCT County high point this week, now heading to Mt. Lola.
