Ascent Trip Report

Gorgeous fall color! Took trail from north for 1k gain - thank you Ryder Irvine for the gps track. Spectacular views of Adams, Rainier, Stuart, & the Enchantments. Larry and I met Becca and the boys in Wenatchee late after our hike out from Buck Mtn. Hot showers and a bed were just the prescription for a good night! We got a late morning start towards Mission Ridge ski area, easily finding the turn on to the FS roads to the trailhead. The drive up was a rainbow of fall color. From the trailhead, there are a few mounds from when the forest service decommissioned the road, but they weren’t too many or too painful. Not far below the summit as we crested the north ridge of the peak, we were treated to views of Adams, Rainier, Stuart, and tr enchantments. Perfect half day fall outing with Becca, Sawyer, Sage, and Larry the man-child! Pics
