Ascent Trip Report

I did a run from the Cosmic Ray Observatory to the Sacramento Mountains high point. It was a beautiful, sunny day. There was a tiny bit of snow in some shady, north-facing areas, but otherwise the road was dry. Beautiful mountain range. I made it to the high point and back in just over an hour. The high point is a little hard to determine, because the top is flat and covered in trees. The cairn is on the south side, a little ways away from the marker on the peakbagger app. It was a small jar with a few signatures.
