Drove the road to about 9,400 ft. then we were stopped by lots of snow. We walked the snow covered road to the summit. Major thunderstorms every where. We got off the summit safe, but got hailed on almost the whole way back to the car.
Camped with my dad near the Ward Townsite signs and walked the road to the top the next morning. Logistically easy, but still nearly 3,500 feet of gross gain on a warm but beautiful day. Deer season here, so I stuck to the road. Saw lots of deer, but no hunters. My report: Ward Mountain (8/3/2008)
