Ascent Trip Report

cross-country from red lake peak on a fairly obvious use trail. i bagged 9750 along the way in case anyone gets any silly idea of adding it to PB, it made a good lunch spot. on the way back i skirted 9750, again on the use trail... eventually the use trail would become too faint, but it was pretty easy finding my way to the PCT pass by the unnamed lake. this last cross-country part was very enjoyable: small ups/downs across drainages, and generally scenic. a coyote ran across the meadow a hundred yards from me.
