Ascent Trip Report

I'd read so many trip reports that this one had me nervous - not because of the hike but because of the drive to the hike. I've had friends who have told me there's "NO WAY" someone can get to the trailhead without a 4x4. After hiking four county high points in the last two days, we decided to roll the dice and see for ourselves just how bad the road is. We drove our E 350 15 passenger van all the way to the trailhead and thanked the heavens it was dry - and had been for the last several days. We encountered nothing the beast mobile couldn't handle. We set off for the saddle, turned south for the county high point, returned to the saddle and went on to north tent mountain before heading down. Fun drive back down the mountain!
