Yesterday (4 March 2012) I hiked up Lewis Peak. Afterwards, I happened to discover that there is indeed a trail that leads almost to the summit of Lewis Mountain. It is faint in some places and nonexistent in others, but it made the hike along the ridge top much more pleasant than a 100% bushwhack would have been. The summit of Lewis Mountain was a pleasant surprise, too - a Duncan Knob-like scramble.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
