Ascent Trip Report

Happy Birthday to me. 54 yrs. old and still hiking. Weather was great, in the 70's all day. We hiked up from Notch Lake and rested at the Devil's Acre lean-to. Was expecting a bushwhack to SW Hunter and surprised to find a well beaten down herd path. Herd path went right to the canister. Should remove that hike as a bushwhack. Anyway, we signed in and returned to the car the route we took up. After a nice exerting hike I took both my son's out to eat for my B'day. My one son and I are down to 4 - 3500 mts. left.
