Ascent Trip Report

Started from AMR with Paul. Seems really out of place. Golf course and all those houses in the middle of the woods. Started hiking down the road and it started raining on us about halfway down the road. We were expecting thunder and lightening, and never really got it. The temperature dropped. Stopped at Rainbow Falls, and headed up the trail the pass. Found some significant snow between the junction and the top of Sawteeth. Nice views of the slides on Basin. Weather was really sketchy all day.
