Ascent Trip Report

Tourist Trip - Hike with father as a kid on vacation many years prior to me taking up outdoor adventures and backpacking. Primarily a car drive up deal. I do not typically rate impressive views obtained without backpacking, climbing, or at least a day hike involved in earning the views very high.Places that allow for a drive up and hike up can have different ratings for the route. A primarily car drive up route always rates lower for me.
