Ascent Trip Report

Evening/night snowshoe, prior to visiting nearby Strawberry Mountain Lookout the following day. Vehicle was stopped by snow on road. The Cornell Butte Lookout is/was still there, as the Forest Fire Lookout Association (FFLA) is trying to find a suitable location for which to move it. From what I could tell, this lookout has had better days... and hopefully will again at another location.
