Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Like previous posts we got to Orange Road (Four Corners with Washburn Road) and it was a non-Maintained Town road but plowed. So we drove in to see what the possibilities were. There is a plowed area that could handle twoc cars just before the private residence (posted). We parked here.

Comments
Comments: We headed in on Orange Road (Snomo Trail) which paralleled the Posted Property for about .4 miles and then just took a bearing for the peak. Snow was about 6" and loose with a crusty base which supported out weight for the most part. Hobble bush initially but then fairly open all the way to the very open summit. Found the highest bump and called it, nothing to sign in on so Gordo left a jar on the neared tree with pencil and pad.
One to return to so we can enjoy the views, it was total fog today.
Thanks Gordo and Doug for helping break trail.
