Ascent Trip Report

Working for USFS Fire Engine 42 we were designated to go up there several times throughout the season and to help Lynn open for the season and bring in supplies. The view is amazing, but bring at least a sweathshirt; there is always a cold wind. The last best turnaround is about a 1/4 mile below the lookout just before the gate, which is usually open from May through November.
