2018-05-19 | Gunnery Mountain, Ridge West of Grass Pass | 2088m | 1482 TH | 10.1km | 820m TA | solo

A solo outing to a favorite area, but two totally new trails. Up the SW slopes of Gunnery, off the backside down into the Gunnery Creek drainage, then up to the ridge between Gunnery creek and Grass pass drainage - a dotted line shown on the map that goes all the way back to the highway and ends in a little bit of a scree run surprisingly enough. Return along the highway. Beauty day out with numerous grouse sightings, cool trees, and a couple new trails "discovered"
