Well for those who end up turning around on Mount Cleavland like me, this is a quick summit tag so you can at least say I summited something.
Had the most crazy experience on the summit. Hiking with a friend near the summit, we came across some snowshoe tracks. I couldn't believe how fresh they were. It took a minute or so but finally I realized they were our tracks and somehow we did a circle as we were looking for the highest spot. I still don't understand how it happened!
Failed to capture Cleveland and bagged this one with Redwic, Miss Iris, EastKing, Flow and Mark to feel like we got something out of our day besides a narly workout in deep snow. Better views than expected.
Nice hike but the summit basically has no views.
Yes, most of the "hike" was a road walk. However, the gorgeous evergreen forests, stream crossings, and snowbanks made this trek a very pleasant one. I definitely recommend this summit hike.
