Ascent Trip Report

Hiked with my dog Marcus, beautiful hike through Big Meadow, lots of dogs on the trail, a couple of stream crossings added to the fun. Looks to be about 8 miles round trip to the summit, maybe 1400 feet of gain or so. But after yesterday's experience in some minor brush Marcus refused to go the final quarter mile/200 feet of gain to the summit (the first 3 miles are all on trail) which didn't actually seem that brushy to me. Easy for me to say, I'm taller than 2 feet I guess. He went through worse brush yesterday but today he was having none of it. Marcus actually lay down in protest until I agreed to head down, since this is a very easy peak I don't mind coming back later to solo the thing. I guess Marcus isn't up to Peakbagger standards. TR is HERE.
