Ascent Trip Report***Private Outing***
Drove the Cherokee as far up the 4x4 Road on the east side of the mountain as I could get and then we walked up the road to the summit - bushwack the last few feet to the top. I need to learn how to drive that Cherokee off road because dozens of Jeeps and Cherokees made it up beyond where I had to stop; even a Cherokee without a lift kit. Embarrassing, but I'll get there.
