Default Mount Cannell June 10, 2021

This could quite possibly be my worst selection of mountain for 2021 and that term mountain is used loosely. Anyways me and my dad were initially going to try and build a trail somewhere out of the Stave Lake area but the road we took was in terrible condition and we couldn't get close to our wanted started point so we bailed on that idea. We were heading back home when I suggested maybe we just park at the Hunter Lookout trailhead and go give our legs a stretch so that was plan B.

The Hunter viewpoint has become quite popular, maybe one day I will go check it out but today instead of following the gated FSR's to the lookout we took a right handed fork and kept following it. This trip was nothing more than just walking in the woods on an FSR and me looking at the topo saying well 60m gain from the road is the high point. My dad has zero interest in bushwacking anymore so he said he would start walking down the road while I went and did my thing. It was definitely overgrown but the route up the ridge was open enough for semi quick travel. After checking the GPS and looking at a few highpoints I found the summit boulder. I made a moss cairn and that was that.

I should have just retraced my steps down the ridge but instead I stupidly decided to just head straight down the face to the road that we had left below. Turns out it's a real old cutblock that was soaking wet and extremely overgrown. It was a blind descent in terrible footing, thrashing down and eventually popping out at the road. I must have taken longer than expected cause my dad was now a fair ways ahead, so I tried to run in clunky boats whenever I could. I caught up to him, and we had some beer and jerky to finish the day off.
