Ascent Trip Report

... followed the quad lift line maintenance road straight up the ski slope finding rhododendrons in bloom and some fresh, near ripe strawberries to munch, first of the seasons bounty for me, then from lift's end found herd path connector to Service Rd. The road lead directly on to the TV Relay Tower and past an old set of rusty stairs & bridge leading up to summit rocks & the Carbon Cty Benchmark. I circled a bushwack around back from the Tower area, along a token of half trails to the rocky summit, there finding the now useless bridge. For my descent, I decided on a leisurely walk following the Service Road back down to the ski area.
