Had done one in the Goat Rocks earlier in the day and was going to do another this afternoon but ran out of time. Snuck in and got this one done instead. Pretty constant climb on the short hike in. 1400 feet in about a mile and a half. Did it in about 40 minutes or so. Only had small glimpses of Rainier. Hiked back down the cliff edge on the way back.

Snuck this one in the early morning hours while my wife was still sleeping in Ohanepecosh Campground. I dodged about 7 elk on the way and scared one medium sized black bear (on the road) A neat little hike to a great viewpoint. Bob Bolton had recommended this one and he was right on. I spent an hour on top and just enjoyed the panoramic views in all directions.
Too bad the clouds started coming in and quickly took away any decent lighting for my photos. Come on Bob and Paul, post away.
