Ascent Trip Report

Encountered a black bear midway down lower section of Nelson Crag Trail. About 15' in the woods, he scampered off as soon as he saw me.
Wildflowers starting to bloom just above treeline - lapland rosebay and diapensia. Nothing in bloom higher up on the ridge between Jefferson and Washington.
