Ascent Trip Report

Decided to get one last low elevation peak in after work and before the new year with a fellow ship (more prestigious)peakbagger.. We opted for the Issaquah alps, as they enabled a quick drive out to Seattle and Kitsap county respectively. There was snow at the trailhead and the road was compacted snow and iced over. At the summit, slightly over an hour later, we hit about 8 inches of snow. We saw great views of Rainier but trees limited additional views. Made it back to car without slipping. Not a bad way to start the last remaining daylight hours of 2014.
