Ascent Trip Report

Started from the Rattlesnake TH. Great looking fall colors already. Very overgrown in the sections before the saddle. I was wearing shorts, so OUCH! Lost the trail at the top of the saddle, so I bushwacked up the ridge until I found it again. Found a deer leg. Still had the hide on it, but it was the lower part of the leg. Weird. Looked for a summit register, but couldn't find one. Great views. I could see the Uintas. Not a soul in sight.
