Ascent Trip Report

I typically do not repeat many peaks but I made an exception for Strawberry Mountain. I am probably one of the only non-hunting, non-tribal hikers who has visited this peak twice... let alone during the same year. However, I wanted to help Paul Michelson reach the lookout tower and the summit area is worth a second visit. Plus, I was interested in seeing how the terrain was different when comparing visits with and without snowpack.

During my first visit I brought strawberries to the summit. This time I brought strawberry milk. Next time? I doubt there will be a next time but if there is then perhaps strawberry ice cream or a strawberry daiquiri.
