I tagged this one first before going over to do Sawmill Mtn. The temperature was almost 100 degrees and fortunately I had enough water to keep me from drying up and blowing away. I didn't go up the road, I just went up cross country from the parking area and in the process I spooked a couple deer that were trying to beat the heat of the day in a wooded section. I took the road down on the way back. An easy hike regardless of which way you go.
Had a nice hike in combination with Sawmill Mtn. The day was beautiful for me, but eveidence was all around of the wild weather the day before. The snow and ice was blasted to the sides of trees and the radio tower and was falling off in chunks as the day warmed. It didn't matter if you under the tree or not. :-)
