Ascent Trip Report

Karen dropped me off on the dirt road (Laffolette St) down at the old RR grade in the saddle and I jogged up to the HP with many barking dogs in tow. 6 friendly dogs in all. The best part was the thousands of black birds migrating and hanging out in the trees along the fallow. When we drove past them they swarmed the car like a scene from Hitchcock's "The Birds" At one point the dogs were a bit too friendly so I jumped back in the car and got out when they left. Other than that a boring HP. I only stretched this one into a mile hike as the dogs were making it a bit difficult to hike along the road in stretches.
