Ascent Trip Report

Late start due to travel distance. Gained the summit precisely at sunset. Gazed longingly upon the ancient extinct volcano and across the verdant valley in which I was born. Noticed the fantastic makeshift shrine at the top. Heard and saw elk scampering and bugling amongst the trees during the descent in the darkness. Miles
