Ascent Trip Report

From Wellpinit-Westend Rd, I turned onto Sand Creek Rd. After a few miles, I leaned left to continue up the Orazada Mine Rd. The road was fine until I neared the right turn to Boundary Lookout Rd. Here I cleared some blowdowns enough to get the car through. After the turn, I proceeded slowly up the dirt road. I went as far as 47.98385, -118.13718, however it would've been better to stop earlier. High-clearance vehicles could have continued. I rode/pushed my bike up to the lookout, then coasted back down to the car. Beautiful views. The insects hiding in the grass were noisy. Lookout #36.
