Ascent Trip Report

My reliance on GPS leads me to quick trailhead decisions relying on cursory map memories and reference. This time going away from the rising trail to go west downslope and parallel without a way to reach Mt Grace but to bushwack steeply up even to crossing a farmer's field wall in thick woods on reaching the summit's high ground. The climb to the fire tower's upper reaches was cool leaving me refreshed to trail jog my way back across to Little Grace's vistas (PB coordinates off downslope east) and on to retrace my steps along the Around The Mountain Trail.
