Ascent Trip Report

kathy and i both finished our NV CoHP on granite today, yay.

the fall colours were gorgeous, absolutely stunning.

the drive to the trailhead had a few scratchy sections, and a few sections you need to avoid falling off the side into the ditch... but any SUV could handle it.

we drove a big scenic loop on FR-084 continuing north to drive up buckskin peak as well, and then west out to US-95.
