Hex Mt 5.6.03

Today's goal was Hex Mt., I left the Salmon La Sac Rd at the second dirt road past the Newport Creek crossing. I parked just below the gate that was locked. As most logging road approaches knowing which is the right road can be difficult. Instead of taking the very first right turn I went to the left and ended up doing a long traverse overlooking Lake Cle Elum. Nearing the end of this road I climbed to Point 3723 and dropped to the east meeting up with another logging road that climbs steeply to the ridge line that trail #1343 follows. I found the trail and had no further difficulty. I didn't find snow until approx 4600ft, snowshoes were not needed. Nice regional views from the summit Great look at Mt. Stuart Looming over everything else. I followed the trail out all the way to it's beginning and had no problem finding the proper road to find my way back to the car. I saw very many deer that drove the dogs crazy, and worried me that the dogs would not be able to find their way back.
