Road 5510

Road 5510 was clear of snow through to the trestle. Before the trip, I researched the area and read some reports. Then I used those descriptions to make a loop trip of the two peaks.

Scout Patrol sat further south. So the dogs and I tackled it first. Then afterward, we traversed west through the gentle ridgeline. Then we continued north up to Little Saint Helens.
