Ascent Trip ReportStopped into the Lake Cushman Realty office. They said it would be OK for us to park at the Dow Mt Rd/Mt Jupiter Dr gate. They warned us not to drive in if the gate was open.
We took the west road option. Watch for the right turn at 1750. We continued to the end of the spur and wound up in some yards. Had to bushwhack back to the summit road. One patch of snow on the summit. No view.
Took the main road back down. Lots of houses. One person stopped to ask us what we were doing. He didn't really say "you're not supposed to be here", but he did suggest some better places to hike.
