Ascent Trip Report

8 of 50. Pretty drive up to the top. I parked at the beginning of PR 104 just to say I hiked up but the road was open all the way to the parking lot. Trace amounts of snow but the temp was only 16 and the winds were 25-30. My hands went numb during the time it took me to remove my gloves and set up my camera for a selfy. Couldn't see much as there was a heavy overcast but the little 1/2 mile whispering trail was pretty with the windblown, snow covered trees.
