Trip Report/Photos

Beautiful sunny day, warming up to 10 degrees. Panoramic view to southwest.

Trail was well packed but not busy, encountered just two couples round trip.

The 'CCC' [Civilian Conservation Corps] was active in this, building final steps to final ascent and this stone structure at the top.
