Ascent Trip Report

Great hike today with my new(just got married) family. In-laws, cousins, etc did a great job. I had done this hike before and been to the summit. Had fun "guiding" this time. Super busy at the cables so I decided not to go for the summit this time. Just didn't have any desire to be up with the crowds. 4 out of our group of 8 summited! Long hike back to our cabin followed by a great pizza dinner at Curry Village.
