Ascent Trip Report

Four days without rain and all the trails up were finally clear -- of all but a few patches of mud. The Reservoir Road parking lot was filled when I arrived around 6 pm. First time since Oct that I saw so many people (a couple dozen) on the trail and bike path access, However, the north-side trail was empty, except for one couple hiking up. Three varieties of flowers made their first appearance but also some poison oak. Visibility was pretty good, being able to just make out Mt. Jefferson, about 80 miles away, in the hazy eastern skyline.
