Ascent Trip Report

Got a very late start, didn't get to the lakes campground until around 4pm, started the hike from the campground via the "grassy lake trail." Very pleasant late afternoon/evening hike. A stiff breeze blew out most of the smoke from the recent fires. Better view than expected of Sierra Buttes. Trail was very well maintained, was really impressed. Signed the summit register, but was very full, not much space left, and an older register in the can was so water damaged as to be unreadable.
