TahawusCascade Mountain  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 19, 2005

Tahawus

Climbed via the Cascade Mountain Trail from Route 73. My first peak in the Northeast over 4000' and not my last one either. A few minutes after summiting the fog burned off and we had fantastic views of the Great Range. Lots of people on a Saturday afternoon but it didn't detract form the mountain's splendor.

Headed over from Porter. Had the summit to ourselves. Gorgeous day! Enjoyed the sunshine and stayed at the summit to have lunch. Some of the best views I've seen (usually fog, rain, clouds ruin things!). Fun peak and you can't beat the views! 19/46

I've been on this peak numerous times, and will forever be beat up by my friends for taking a date up it in winter. She survived! She dumped me afterwards, though.

Climbed this one a couple of weeks ago with the whole family. A great little peak and everyone was having fun. Of course that was before a storm hit us on the summit and rained on us the rest of the day!

My first High Peak. Loved the rocky dome, pools of water, moss, and the view. Being 6, I wanted to "slide" down Big Slide. Remember wanting to climb over to Porter but my dad wouldn't allow it (so we just had to come back years later).

Does this several times. I know I'll get some argument but its one of the best. Its short and relatively easy so its great when there is not much time, or for taking that friend who wants to see what the high peaks are all about, and hell its got one of the best summit views.

TLPOpening Day '07  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 8, 2007

My first hike of the year. I know real late in the year to be starting out, but a fella has got bills to pay! Some snow still sticking around, so it made nice scenery. It was crazy windy on the top. Enough to push you around, and make you crouch real low at times. I just basically ran up there to the benchmark, and then got the hell out of town.

zofonGreat Short Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 11, 2002
This is a nice easy hike from the road. It gets kind of steep and eroded in the mid-section. But nice views can be had from the summit. I've had very nice as well as very limited (less than 15m) views from this peak.

Nice easy climb which accounts for the 40 odd people on the summit...

Where it all started in the 'dacks. I was probably about 7 years old when we did Cascade and Porter and 10 years later after finishing up the 46ers was visited again to see where it all began.

A great hike that my 4 year old son loved (me too)! Lots of rocks to climb over and jump on and a big old tree that was hollowed out at the bottom which made a really neat picture with my son sitting in the tree. The trail is a mix of even ground, gradual uphill climbs, and a few steep sections. Nothing that requires special equipment or anything during summer or fall. A very good day hike, took us about 4 hours round trip, and that includes playing around along the way.
It was VERY windy at the top the day we climbed, so we didn't go all the way to the summit, as the wind was too much for my son. Had a blast and got some great pictures along the way. Views are very good from anywhere near the summit. A great place to hang out for a while, enjoy the scenery and relax. Also to let kids play around and climb...supervised, of course.
There are a few climbing areas that can be slippery further up, but not too bad. Just have to be careful.ENJOY!
...This was the second time I climbed Cascade Mt. First time was early July 2005 and there was almost no visibillity, but still a great hike.
