Sasse Mt 6.22.04

I had hoped for a summit of both Sasse Mt and Jolly Mt. I got a much later start than I would have liked so by the time I reached the trailhead it was quite warm. The road that takes you to the trailhead is quite slow but is manageable with some ground clearance. Trail 1325 is in fine shape it does get a little sketchy around the area with quite a few springs. I made the summit of Sasse in less than 30 minutes. The views are quite limited so I set off for my next goal of Jolly Mt.. I followed the Sasse ridge trail until I crossed a logging rd. I took a right on this road and walked to it's end. I was expecting there to be a trail, however after closer inspection of the map I realized that this road was the wrong one. This road was not shown on my map. I left the road and climbed to the proper road which was a few hundred feet above me. I started running a bit low on time and there was no shelter from the unbroken sun, so I stopped and had my lunch. Although I only had around 1000ft of climb left I didn't have the time to make it there and back before I wanted to be home. I backtracked and rejoined the Sasse Mt trail. I continued North until I reached the second logging road which is the proper one. With no more time I hastily returned to the truck.I had hoped for a summit of both Sasse Mt and Jolly Mt.
