Ascent Trip Report

Buzzard Lake Road is not very well maintained beyond the lake itself, but I didn't see anything that would block a careful passenger car driver. The lake does not have any facilities aside from fire pits, but it looked like a pleasant place to car camp. Quieter than the Wal-Mart in Omak where I spent the night. There was a herd of fat cows on the mountain on this day. They didn't seem to care about anything except eating and resting.
