Ascent Trip ReportLong drive to the trailhead, a hour from N Bend, but good gravel roads. Trail in good shape although some puddles as it had rained hard the day before. Thankfully the brush had been cut back so didn't get us as wet as expected. But another story once off the trail for the last 800-1000' push to the summit. Got drenched and very slippery on the wet heather/blueberry bushes. Started sprinkling a bit too. Whiteout conditions unfortunately so no views. Lots of ripe blueberries, but saturated from the rain so not too good. They should be good again in the next few days of good weather. Slow return on the slippery rocks and roots until last couple of miles that's flat and on the logging road that's being taken over again by nature.
