Ascent Trip Report

West Blue Mountain. Was pleasantly surprised to find a reasonable trail up there, on my way down I lost it a bit and had to backtrack which was not a big deal. Up to almost Cub Spring it was Snow Free and thereafter was a good quality Snow to walk over it. Lots of downed Tree and Brush, which probably is more nuisance without Snow. Found the Register in a yellow Can. The small Glass Jar is not sealing properly and was soaking wet. Had to dry it out in the Sun before I was able to Sign the Paper. Definitely needs a proper Jar and Register. A very enjoyable day in the Mountains and definitely not very often visited. Access Road is not too bad till the last couple of Miles. Trailhead has enough Space for Camping.

Happy Hiking, Josef
