Ascent Trip Report

This highpoint was an easy one for me in a cold spring forest. There were no leaves, nor any buds out yet, so it was easy to see around. I took Jackson Zaharia's advice and just went for the biggest contour. I parked just to the east of a tiny pond that's on the west side of Strawberry Mountain Road. It was gloomy and began to rain when I got out of my car. The mound right next to the road and to the south of the pond is the highpoint. It was clearly higher than the point to the north of it. This one is really quick and easy, and doesn't offer a view to make you want to linger. It's a good tack on to Clearwater County if you're in the area. Some of the area around here is posted as reservation land, but there is no such sign near the highpoint.
