Route Climbed: Road/Little Summit Date Climbed: February 10th 2005
A nice winter hike with a superb view. Even though there was no snow in the Cascades below 3000 feet in February this year there was snow on Mt. Constitution below 800 feet. Because of the snow and ice the summit road was gated at the turnoff for Mountain Lake. I did a loop from the turnoff going to Mountain Lake and then up to the Little Summit and then on to the true summit. Took the road down. The skies were clear and you could see forever though Baker dominated the scene.
Route Climbed: Cascade Lake trail Date Climbed: July 16, 2005
Nice and easy hike. I ran up the trail while my girlfriend Etsuko, not being able to hike due to her recovering foot, drove to the top to meet me there to admire sunset views. Incredible views of surrounding islands, Mt. Baker and Rainier! Can't wait to be back to San Juans
