Route: Ski trails, unnamed path

Jogged the gravel access road that weaves up the ski area. The road is well built, so it wasn't muddy (despite the rain). One patch of snow remaining on the road (lots of other patches on the ski trails; multiple turns still possible). From the top of Cascade Basin, I followed the herd path up to the fire tower, which is locked above the first flight of stairs.
