Location[edit]

On the bittersweet ski hill.

Participants[edit]

retupmoca and fellow adventurer.

Plans[edit]

Get on the motorcycle, ride to bittersweet, and take a picture from the gate unless it just happened to be open.

Expedition[edit]

After getting somewhat confused and riding down a road that made a turn every mile or so, I made it to the bittersweet main gate - which was open! As it turns out, there was a free, open to the public event going on (Apparently called Harry Fest: [[1]]). In any case, we received permission to climb the hill, so up we went. We ended up climbing all the way to the top of the hill while following the all-knowing GPS arrow - and then the arrow pointed over the edge, so we went partway down the side of the hill (where I started complaining about having just climbed *up* the hill), and got to the hash on fairly level ground. Mission accomplished!
