Ascent Trip Report

Road paved and in good shape for a long ways in, though fairly overgrown. Be prepared for scratches on your vehicle. Judy the wonder Jetta was stopped at about 5000' just before a hairpin turn. Hiked up the road until the last rise prior to the last saddle. Heard what sounded like ordinance interspersed with gun shots. Apparently this weekend this was being used as a firing range, entirely legal I'm sure. When bullets starting whizzing vaguely towards our direction we hightailed out of there.
