Ascent Trip Report

With Glen. started ~845pm after an "american lunch" at burger king in north bend. we summitted around 1130pm and were back to the car driving away by around 1:30am. No speed run, we stopped for 30 minutes at the summit and hungout a few times on the trial, but it was still a quick ascent and an outstandingly clear and beautiful night. The stars were crystal clear, the snow reflected the lights of the city and we descended without headlamps on. It was cold but not very windy, and the mist in the valleys in all directions was very beautiful. we could easily see surrounding peaks in the dark without lights once our eyes adjusted. The mailbox was relatively empty: I placed pink sunglasses that I'd found there back in February with Krispin and an old digital watch as well that I'd had since middle school: I'd never changed the battery and it still kept accurate time.
