Ascent Trip Report

Day didn't start off right. In backing up a rental van (wanted a small car) went off a cow grate into a hole. Two elk hunters helped me get out.
So got a late start at 9 AM on little sleep. Did a nice loop hike from North Schell Timber Creek - then ridge line to summit South Schell, then descend to Berry Creek. Then missed a turn in the dark trying to cut across on the Ranger trail back to the car.
Fianlly got back to car at 11:30 PM - kind of cool stumbling around in the dark listening to the elk bugle and the coyotes howl not knowing for sure where the car was. Liked the ridgeline a lot.
21.4 miles total
