hiked up the east side of Sugarloaf Peak on this holiday weekend. Started from the "Sugarloaf Picnic Area" identified on some older maps, approximately 3 miles due east of the summit, near Highway 89. Hiked through the lava flows to the upper cone, where the going was steep but efficient. First ascent in 1.5 years, according to the summit register.
"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night, in the dusty recesses of their minds, awake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes to make it reality."
