Ascent Trip Report

Went up Bandera Mountain today with family. Snow has completely melted off the mountain. At false summit, I'd been hoping to press on to the true summit but other family members do not share my emphasis on summits. I got a trip to Mason Lake and views of Mt. Rainier and Mt. Adams as a consolation prize.
