Ascent Trip Report

Road was in excellent shape, and views were good.

Glad I was paranoid and concerned about snakes in the late afternoon sun in the rocks around the stairs and the old foundation on the summit and had Colonel on a tight leash. Coming down the stairs we heard the loudest rattler I think I've ever heard. Don't know if the sound was amplified by being under the big rock, or if he had a lot of rattler friends, but we beat a hasty retreat. We could still hear him going strong when we got back to the car that was parked a little ways down the road.
