Ascent Trip Report

So today was really a beautiful day, on the drive to the trail I was reading the book and had it in my head a pleasant walk some steep areas but HELL NO it was steep and sweaty! I do not think I will do this one again anytime soon and to top it off the dog crap on the sides of the trail smelled and had attracted flies most of the way up! What happened to "bag it up and carry it out" come on people if you bring your dog don't leave it on the side of the trail!!!Other than that a great day with the hubby as always <3
