Ascent Trip Report

I'd hoped to make up for limited summit views from my previous trip to Silver Lake by hiking on a cool, clear day the 2nd time around; though temperatures were modest and there was even a hint of wind, the rainclouds swooped down on the summit just as I was reaching it. I was able to explore the summit ridge a bit more extensively this time and during the intermittent moments of the clouds clearing, I was able to get some impressive views of nearby waterways and peaks.

The trail offered little in the way of mud, bugs were not an issue and though some of the exposed roots/rocks were a bit tough on the ol' knees, I thoroughly enjoyed my climb...
