Ascent Trip Report

Temp inversion. 32 deg and foggy at the start. sunshine by 1,500 ft. clear roads until 2,200ft then ditched the bikes and booted up rest of the way to the top where the temp was in the mid to upper 40's. Nice views from Rainier to Hood. Smooth roads made for a fast descent back into the fog.

The current maps and Google Earth views do not seem to depict all of the roads up this thing.
