Ascent Trip Report

parked at the paved parking near the fenced off mine site. Hiked on some of the maintained trails and then popped up each hill and looked at the other fenced in rock feature and worked down to the lake. Went down and touched water. Then hiked up the small hill. Not a big deal here. The most exciting thing I saw was a large pine tree that was riddles with holes from woodpecker insect foraging that had most of the holes filled in by some sort of squirrel that had cached hundreds of acorns in the holes. It was interesting - the tree looked like it had been decorated with acorns but they went up the 3 foot diameter tree about 15 feet upwards!
