Ascent Trip Report

Hiked up the steep ravine trail, and came across a herd of bighorn sheep on the intermediate ridge. Great views of the mountains from up here, nice blue sky day with some low laying clouds across the horizon. Followed the more established trail on the way back down, much safer than going back down that steep muddy ravine. Thanks to Richard Hensley for the great directions.
