Ascent Trip Report

At the end of 103rd there is a parking area, you just can't park there over night. Maria and I walked up with no sign of homeless and I was thinking they all went downtown to join the fun. Much to my dismay there was a tent right on top which made the visit a little uncomfortable with my 6 year old daughter in tow. We treaded lightly then returned down seeing another tent on a different descent route. My suspicion that nine am would be before any camps woke up seemed to be correct so we never actually saw another person on the Saturday morning hike.
