Ascent Trip Report

With Jan. 16.7 miles, 5000' Elevation gain. Started from Emmerson Campground. Most people go from Poison flat, which is closer and less of a climb, but Emmerson was where we began our honeymoon backpacking in 1987. Saw the most incredible wildflowers, none of which captured well on camera due to cloudy skies. We were well into clouds at the summit, so no views. Signed the register, got back to camp and headed home.
