Ascent Trip Report

Stolling the grounds. A definate tour of the Estate is required. Karen, Sarah, and Daniel took a day off from playing in the mountains and toured the amazing estate. We parked in the upper parking but then karen and I walked down to the lower parking lot and then up the TH to the Estate. The kids not wanting the extra walk met us at the big headwall between the Estate and the big sloped grassy field with the gazebo at the top.

We then all went in and enjoyed the Estate. The library in particular is spectacular and the pool in the basement. We then went down and explored the lower gardens and greenhouse. Then on the journey back to the car, Karen and I hiked up the big grassy hill past the gazebo and upper paver parking and into the horse trails and snuck in the Estate HP as the kids took a nap in the car. The hiking distance includes the grounds, getting to the estate, down by the water feature and greenhouse but not the actual walking inside the huge house.
