While I am working on my 46ers (35/46) my friend Niels is working to get to the half way point before his study abroad program ends and he goes back to Denmark. I repeated Cascade (11 for Niels) and Porter (10 for Niels) with the thought that if we had extra time we could at least add Pitchoff for my ADK 100 highest. But we decided that we had such a good day and that we didn't want to over do it and that it could be saved for another day.

With the wind chill it was about a zero degree feel day with snow and sunshine. Beautiful. While on the summit of Porter, Cascade's summit disappeared in the clouds but the extreme winds quickly removed the clouds by the time we got there. Both summits had beautiful views but Cascade was so windy that we stayed just long enough to get some pictures and head out.

There was about 4 inches of snow on the summits and no less then an inch at the trail head.
