Ascent Trip Report

I was heading for the Siskiyous because of the great forecast next week. I had planned to drive by Lassen, because I thought it was a little too cool for my liking. But I pulled over, and brought up the summit forecast. Bright sun, 48°F and 6mph wind, in November. I would probably never get a day with better visibility and weather, so I diverted through the park. An added bonus: 8:30 Sunday morning, and I was only the 5th car in the lot. I practically had the trail and the summit to myself.
