Ascent Trip Report

a mostly off trail excursion to practice maximum social distancing but also been bored doing the same old trails each time so i took several straight lines across valleys, brush, areas I have never explored before....saw a herd of elk resting on a back area saddle, crosses several ravines, explored some ridges that are off trail, found the peak and then meandered down and into the Fosberg area trying to get as much workout as possible in spring since the summer months are coming soon and hopefully the travel restrictions will be gone. Made this a 1400 foot gain hike with all the senseless wandering and exploring but loved the solitude
