Ascent Trip Report

Had to bail on our weekend plan for Glacier Peak due to the smoke and projected thunderstorms on summit day. Lucky for me, I was the first to chime in with a back-up plan before my partners had a chance to drink some coffee and get their senses about them: Clark Co high point it is! It's no Glacier Peak, but this was a really cool hike. We enjoyed the scramble up to the liner on the ridge and I tagged each potential high point on the ridge near the county line. My partners were amused but not surprised as they are frequently subjected to these wacky outings.
We made our way to the Sturgeon Rock summit then over to Silver Star, where we enjoyed a rousing game of Bananagrams on the summit. Due to large ruts in the road, we parked about 2 mi from the Silver Star trailhead, however there were many trucks and even a few subarus at the parking area.
