Ascent Trip Report

As part of the "Flags on the 48" my wife and I were hiking this with the Americorps Vistas group. However my wife was only a few months removed from a C-section and was not up to the hike. We turned around after about half mile and returned to bottom where we bought lift tickets to get up. From where the lift drops you off we walked up to the wooden tower on the summit. It was cloudy and very windy with no views at all. We were just happy to be able to take part in the great event, even if we didn't "hike" the whole mountain. At some point I will hike the whole set of Wildcat peaks and bag them properly!
