Ascent Trip Report

Hiked up Slide Mountain as a day trip with mom and dad. Pleasant hike up, especially once we gained the shoulder and headed up towards the summit. At the first viewpoint on, however, the flies were so bad that we found it difficult to stop and altogether rather unpleasant. Nice hike despite the bugs.
