Mt. Hood- Sunshine Route condition

Planning to attempt Mt. Hood via the Sunshine/Eliot Glacier route this coming weekend (June 6). Anyone been on this recently? Wondering two things:

I was gonna do it this weekend but bailed with the prospect of 75 mph winds. My friends can't make it next weekend but I still wanna get after it as long as the weather cooperates. Looking at being there June 6-7.

Trailhead Camping/Parking in the Whites

Hello, so I will be driving cross-country to spend some time in New England this summer and wanted to see if there are any restrictions regarding trailhead camping/overnight parking.

Massive unnamed tower in the Tushar Range - any info?

I noticed on Google Earth (TM) that there is a massive 650' tall tower rising on the ridge below Mount Holly. There are no photos, no mention of it, not even anything on the topo maps? Not on Peakbagger! Not on Lists of John. Massive tower appears on Google Earth (TM). It is at 38.352133, -112.344396. Is this just a mirage?

Mid-June backpacking

Some friends and I were hoping to do the Four Pass Loop on June 17-20 due to the dry winter, but it's starting to look less and less likely with the late snow and recent weather conditions. We've already made travel plans to be in Colorado during that time period.

Bailey Traverse; Elwha snow finger

Hi, I am planning to do the Bailey traverse solo this summer in late July/early August and have been pouring over topo maps, multiple trip reports, and the description in the Olympic Mountain climbing guide. I will not be carrying a GPS and would love to meet with someone, or at least chat over phone/email, who has done the route (or will have by the time I go). There a couple of spots where route ...
