Ascent Trip Report

Nice blood -pumping hike. Wasn't as challenging as I expected from TR's and books, however my legs were pretty stiff in the evening from the steep incline/decline toward the top. I thought Mt Adams was much tougher than Snowy Mt. Nice weather, met some interesting hikers along the way. Beautiful views of Indian Lake, well worth the hike.
