Ascent Trip Report

Well that was worth the drive up the 101. Figured I could bag this quickly. A lot of traffic on the road once I left the highway, which seemed odd (turns out there was a plant sale at the school). Parked past the gate and on that side the fence just stops. Walked up and enjoyed the views of my forest (this month, anyway) and a bit of Shasta-T as well. Reached the top and could only find the locator mark and not the benchmark proper. Cool lookout that resembles the one at cold spring, maybe still used even. Views back towards the ocean from the top. Quite a few crows riding the air currents up there. Provably enjoying the view as well?
