Ascent Trip ReportWe arrived at the Cannon Tramway parking lot around 10:45. It was an absolutely perfect day. It was in the upper 60s, and we had clear skies for miles.
It was the first mountain hike for my wife and dog so we all wondered how well it would go. Everybody had a great time. Rufus (dog) stayed on the trail the entire time and led us most of the way.
We made it to the summit around 1:15 where we took a break for pictures and sandwiches, then started our decent around 1:45. Rufus had a tough time with some of the loose gravel on the way down so it took a bit longer than expected to make it down. We made it back to the trail head around 2:45. We all had some ice cream then jumped in the car to drive home.
It was a great day.
