Ascent Trip Report

I took the usual route I've described before (from the east side) to the top. However, this time I walked downhill toward the sun on a fairly flat westside ridge, eventually following elk tracks with hoofs that were 4-1/2" long. I then turned left and followed the Mill Hill loop trail back to the car
