Ascent Trip Report

We parked at the abandoned buildings, but could have driven much higher. We were startled by a rattlesnake on the way up, got a warning from the snake and both species went their separate ways. On the descent I borrowed Josh's sunglasses, I had left mine in the car and was scorching my eyes. Great views from the top of the peak!
