Ascent Trip Report

Renata wanted to clean the house and the girls and I got a chance to venture out past our local mini-mountains to the edge of the more mountainous terrain, approximately an hour and a half drive, no traffic. Incidentally, traffic on the way back, took us three hours. Had to carry Sarah and Christina giving me another 45+ pounds to drag up the 1.4K prominent peak. In just over a mile, the steep trail climbed just shy of 1500 feet, not including the tower. There was some Buddhas at the top as well as some picnic tables. Great views. The trail was in good shape too, and we summiteers in under an hour. Isabel did extremely well.
