Ascent Trip Report

we followed daniel mick's useful driving track. we came in from the north (burns) and we returned to the north... the roads are in such great condition we could have done this in 4h round-trip (from burns), i.e. 2h round-trip from pavement, but we chatted with numerous folks, and stopped several times. to be honest i expected 6h+ for this based on various historical reports, and gmaps. we were done so early we ended up driving all the way to strawberry to finish off our afternoon.
