Ascent Trip Report

This was purely a drive up, I took a friend from work up here and we camped on the central summit, and hiked up the main radio tower summit. I still love this mountain. We spent a couple days hanging out up on the rim and exploring the bluffs. Tons of purple thistle weed along the summit crest with lots of bumblebees, nice to see the bees doing well up here away from civilization. Full moon at night completely illuminated the summit plateau, very cool!
