Lots of brush on the way up and down. Not sure if we were on the correct trail but eventually navigated our way to the summit.
Did this with my two oldest kids, Thalia and Thaddeus. Great Day!
Hiked up the south ridge with my dog Packer. People were just heading down the east ridge as we were heading up. Signed the register hid under a rock. Kind of a nasty day, cold and windy and a bit of rain.
The masses stayed near the trailhead to work the huckleberry crop, while I pursued a solo effort to the summit.
If memory serves correctly, a lone coyote scooted across the south slopes with not more than a quick glance at me.
