Ascent Trip Report

Very nice hike in a very pretty area with great views of Mt. Hood from the highest point and a few spots along the trail. Existing reports are fully adequate. I was surprised, even after this winter, to find snow on the trail around 4100' on July 31, though it was fairly spotty and nothing at all to negotiate. Reports from hikers I chatted with were that sections of the PCT at lower elevations to the south were nearly impassable with snow.

Met some nice folks whose deal is trail miles. They're trying to hit some outlandish number of miles by their mid-70s. And they only have 25 years left in which to do it.

The crux was the dudes with handguns stuck in the back of their pants. Geez...
