Ascent Trip Report

i drove in from the east. the road transitions from pavement, to gravel, to rough and rutted gravel, to larger, but loose rocks. clearance, 4x4, good tires to get as far as i did.

i stopped where i did because the road curves around the north side of a ridge, and there were snow banks that were more than i felt like dealing with. besides i wanted a bit of a hike: i had some stomach thing happening the night before, which prevented me getting up early enough to get a good start on box elder before the temperature became too uncomfortable.

at any rate, the drive to where i parked is about 50 minutes.

throughout the road hike i'd pass, and be passed by, a large group of 5 or 6 families in OHVs. they did beat me to the summit, but i don't know by how much... they were still there when i arrived. they weren't able to drive very fast with the remaining snow banks.

awesome views.

on the way down i took two short-cuts... the first was fine, the second was a mistake because i "cliffed out" at the road's edge, where the road is cut into the side of the mountain. i had to find a safe way down the loose wall of the road.

on the way out i had to pass many many more OHVs and motorcycles. popular area.
