Ascent Trip Report

YEAH!!! 3rd CoHP for the YEAR! First was MAUI, Second was Hawaii(State/CoHP), and this is the 3rd. Goal is 5 at least this Year. Of course, we have 1 State HP now being Hawaii. I'd Like 2 State HPs, but work may derail that.
What a crazy trip. Hubby decided to take the less used road up and the more used road back down. The good news is, we made it up! We had to move one downed tree to get around it, but otherwise the road is viable even this early. Got to the cache and after going in circles a bit, and tromping through a few snow piles, we got it. Then as we were signing the log we got munched on by mosquitoes! So wrong to have snow and mosquitoes in the same place. Started back down the more used road, came around a corner and were confronted with a large pile of snow in the middle of the road. Luckily it was easy to get around. So there's that mini report on the conditions up there, lol. As for the cache itself, it seems to be holding up.
