Ascent Trip Report

Somehow completely missed a left turn from the Woods Rd not seeing the well blazed WCI Tr but still completed a planned circuit while crossing many trail junctions along the way with my first summit becoming the last climb and vice versa, used my micro-spikes to start hiking while finally climbing Assiniwikam Mtn without them meeting but a few instances of questionable snow dusted ground, an enjoyable outing to various outlooks and wonderful vistas.
