Went to the lookout site (sweet views)and then up to the summit (not so great views). When I was on top, I heard another vehicle in the area. When I drove out, down at the Foss River, the gate was locked, with me inside. What timing...I knew it must have been the Ranger doing a final sweep before shutting the gate for the winter. After waiting for 30 minutes, he came down and let me out. http://willhiteweb.com/alpine_lakes_wilderness/maloney_ridge/lookout_195.htm
