Ascent Trip Report

Annual Logan Peak hike. Beautiful crisp morning. Clear blue skies with about 4 inches of snow starting around 8000, slowly increasing until we reached the peak. I lugged a very large Henri Matisse painting (Woman with a Hat) to the top so I could leave a memento. Unfortunately I didn't secure it very well to the top, so it was destroyed over the course of a year (I'm writing this some 4 years after the fact). To this day there are some remnants of the fancy frame. I wish I had taken better care of attaching the gorgeous work of art. Now humanity has lost one of its great treasures: a lame replica of a mediocre, yet still iconic, fauvist painting. From the peak we went down the east ridge to Little Baldy and connected with the South Syncline, which we took to the main trail.
