You can't beat the east side of Mount Adams
for sheer beauty and bulk! That's the Ridge of
Wonders in the center, with the Mazama Glacier
a short distance above it!
What a clear day you had! You can even see
the rocky outcrop known as The Castle! WOW!!
wow it sounds like you know the area well, this was my first time from Bird Creek Meadows, and I've only hiked the south side a couple of times. I need to remedy that next year as it's so close to where I live.
Yes, I wish I could join you. In 1988, I took
a field (Geology) course at GRCC in Auburn.
I have only explored the east side of Adams -
in pictures and diagrams. Looks like fun !!
