Pretty fall day (2" snow later that night). Accessed from private land to the NNW, by permission. Saw the (mating?) ladybugs all over the summit.
We followed the Rudolph Mountain trail to the saddle south of the summit than bushwacked north to the summit. The summit area is pretty mellow and wooded, but the outcrops northwest of the summit area provide wonderful viewing. We even had a large bird of prey do a fly-by as we were eating lunch!
