Ascent Trip Report

We parked by the Red Gym and walked through the Union to get Babcock ice cream, then went out to the lake and walked by all the Hoofer's Boats. Once we made it to the forest to the west we followed some wood steps up to a mowed area and then walked over to the statue of Lincoln where my grandparents met. I'd been to Bascom a number of times before, but this time we stepped on the high ground right in front of Bascom Hall. On the way back we went down part of the grassy hill and then went back to the lake shore and around the shoreline before making it back to our car.
