Ascent Trip Report

Today I finally went out to hike...Working on the 52WAV so I checked these 2 & figured I could do them even being out of shape.
Started at Blueberry Mtn had to park about a .5 from TH ...Started our hike at 9am & temp was perfect & trail nice & dry.Views were awesome today.Stayed at summit a bit then back down to drive to Chippewa TH .
On road walk to car we spotted a grouse & Luna almost caught .It must have been protecting a nest but she just ran along the road just in the woods with Luna trying to get her . I finally was able to walk faster than her & we got by
Got to Chippewa TH around noon & started hiking at 12:15...Start of this trail I really flat & I was doing good . Then the steeps started & my legs were screaming...I alsmost gave up but I persisted . The ledges along the way are awesome & I really liked this trail.
When we got to summit a few pics & Luna & I picked a shady spot to have lunch. We sat & then the biting flies started to get us. I shared my PB&J with Luna packed up & headed down back at car at 3:30pm.
A great day of hikng with my best buddy on a gorgeous day . 9.5 hrs 8.5 miles
