Ascent Trip Report

Late afternoon/evening ascent - making for a relatively cool hike to the summit. The trail was well-marked, where appropriate, and easy to follow. A couple of deer grazing along the path and then a herd of big horn sheep (at least 20 waiting for us on the summit), offered an added bonus and allowed for some nice shots. Took in the sunset on the summit and then headed back until a fairly full moon.
