Ascent Trip Report

8th state highpoint! Things you should I know: everyone says you need a 4X4 vehicle if you want to drive past the visitor center. This is false. I rented a Jeep Wrangler for the day and was passed no less than 3 times on the way up. A Toyota Camry, a Nissan Altima and and Chevy Cruz all passed me on this “4X4” road. So save your money unless you want the “experience “ of drivingup a volcano in a Jeep.
