Ascent Trip Report

I mistook my actual trailhead for Opperman Pass, still reaching Cherry Ridge (microspikes on) finding both a Red Trail well blazed and a Ridge Trail along the way, and in-between bushwacking then trying to follow the Ridge Trail back losing it in a snow covered logging yard's choice of left or right and not realizing my mistake till after failing to reach Ricketts Fire Tower.
