Ascent Trip Report

There may have been someone in the FAA facility, so I can't say I was the only party on the mountain. Fog had rolled in during my hike from the gate, and it was getting late, but I still could have been seen if they were watching. I walked over to the benchmark, faced away from the building, took a photo of the benchmark, then without looking back a took off down the road. For fear they might have seen me I hurried my hike back to the car, jogging some of the way. Then as I drove down toward Falls City I kept thinking I might see a sheriff car coming up the road with lights flashing. Nothing of the sort occurred, however, so I managed to get this one without prior permission and I didn't even get busted.
