A six peak day! Baker, Glacier, Adams, Rainier, St. Helens and Hood were all visible from the peak today. Gorgeous day. Get there early to climb before the heat really kicks in and the crowds converge. Two people at the top when we got there and one more arrived shortly thereafter. But there were at least 10 people there when we headed down after an early lunch. Two small snow fields to cross but they were not too difficult even though the snow was very slushy. We broke out microspikes but that was probably overkill and on the way back down we left them in our packs. Still a little early for wildflowers. Creeks were refreshingly ice cold and flowing good. We had done this hike almost 3 years to the day and seemed a little harder this time but maybe I'm just getting hold. About 5 hours round trip including a nice lunch at the top. Great views make this hike great bang for the buck!
