Sasse Mt Logging Road 3.23.04

I was hoping today to make it to the Forturne Creek Rd. but unlucky for me the Salmon La Sac road is still closed at the campground. I scrambled to find a second choice. I had used the Sasse Mt Logging road last year and decided to do a litte more exploring in this area. There was just enough room to park on the west side of the road near the Red Mt Campground. There was quite a bit more snow than I would have expected. I climbed lazily on this sunny and warm day until I reached a junction at around 3400ft. Last year I had continued on the mainline that takes you toward Sasse Mt Trail, this time I opted for the trail less traveled. Taking a left on this spur instead I climbed to a point near 3600ft where there was a perfectly placed snow free stump to eat lunch on. I soaked up the quite warm rays ate my lunch and enjoyed the comfy seat. Despite the rather modest elevation there were some nices views of the snow capped Daniel-Hinman group as well as Davis and Goat Mts. in the forefront.
