Ascent Trip Report

A nice end to our little Thanksgiving adventure in the Okanogan. After bagging this one, we drove home to Portland. Overall, the trip was extremely cold, full of great company, and incredibly picturesque. There is a great soft spot in my heart for rambling up dirt roads to a pretty but unremarkable summit, and it is an underrated kind of peakbagging. Learn to truly love bags like Buckhorn, and your heart will be full, friends.
