Ascent Trip ReportI didn't really attempt this. I'd read from the previous reports that the gate to the summit is closed until April 1, but I though since I was in the area I might as well check out the scenery. Slept at the top of the pass which is just down the road from the HP entrance and woke up to a beautiful landscape. The wind was strong enough from the tornado warnings that I actually woke up to my car rocking back and forth. I didn't think it'd be wise with what I was wearing to make the 14 mile trek up the road during a tornado warning. I'll be back...
