On Top of Old Snowy

The highest mountain in Goat Rocks, Old Snowy, is just a hair under 8000' high and a pretty easy climb (about 5 miles round trip from our camp) with just a little bit of hairy scrambling at the end. But it offers some of the best views I've ever experienced: Rainier, Adams, St Helens and almost all of western Washington can be seen from the top. Monday was so nice that even at the top it was comfortable with just a windbreaker. But this is one case where 5 pictures are worth 5000 words:

The PCT is under here somewhere!

On Top of the World!

Heading back to camp (Mt Adams loometh)
