Area around summit of Hurricane is thick spruce with patches of deadfall. I offset down by saddle and hit nice open birch-spruce forest. Ridge approaching Chokecherry had very open birch hobble woods. I turned east to bypass Chokecherry Hill. Big mistake. It was steep and sprucy with much deadfall. I should turned west and followed the spine of the curving ridge all the way to Bald Hill. I bet that would have been nicer.
