Heard a Traditional Latin Mass at OLSOS Saturday night, last SAT night they will offer apparently, and decided to enjoy Sunday morning, clear skies forecast. Was out the door at 0500 (0400 with setting the clocks forward) and at MT Townsend Upper TH at 0650. Started on trail with flashlight at 0700 and was at summit at 0840. Awesome sights with clear skies. had an apple, and hit North Peak about 8 minutes later. Started Decent from North Peak at 0904 and was pack at TH at 1015. Trail had patches of compacted snow about 2 miles up and then mostly stayed on trail until the summit.
