This was my second attempt. The first time I was experimenting with AMS and had uncontrollable giggles caused by a train of men with babies on their chests. But...this is a great mountain and amazing views.
A beautiful hike up the trail. The ground was frosty but no snow yet. Coming around the summit, Mt. Rainier exploded into view. We took a nap in the warm sun before heading back down the trail for a bumpy ride home.
Rough road in made the drive longer than expected, but this trail goes fast. Wish the clouds would have been a bit higher as the views are tremendous here. Didn't see any goats but a very friendly chipmunk resides on the summit. Easy hike and very enjoyable.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
