Ascent Trip Report

Yesterday I hiked with Brian & Dale & Kiki. We were gonna do Eisenhower & Pierce...When we got to Highland Center & saw how cold & windy it was & were not totally prepared for that decided to stay below treeline & did Avalon Field Willey & Tom .

We were suprised to see fresh snow on the trail but trail was in good condition.A few monorails frown emoticon & a few blow downs all easily skirted .All water crossings we manageableexcept at the end I slipped & 1 boot went in the drink LOL

All in all a great day temps were perfect but winds did gust quite a bit ..Met Bob N Geri & Dusty on top of Field .When we started Washington was covered in white.On top of Tom a few hours later all the snow was gone ...Go figureLOL
