Ascent Trip Report

To avoid any COVID transmitters, since only about half the people I encounter on this hike wear masks, despite a sign at the trailhead that masks are required, I went late and came down in the dark, seeing only a couple of students that were still near the summit as I took the trail down. Unfortunately, Oregon is making seniors like me wait pretty far down the queue to get the COVID vaccine, one of the last states to give it to seniors, and it may get the "honor" of being last, since they've also been slow in giving out vaccinations. Yet, there's a bill in the Oregon legislature to force parents to vaccinate their children or the children can't attend school. Makes one think the inmates are running the asylum.
