Ascent Trip ReportSean, Mark me and Ava. Yep, time to get serious and start doing the two-fers! Second car at Tenerife and first group up the peak. I'm always reminded how much I like Tenerife with its more scrambliness. Dusting of fresh snow started just a bit after gaining the ridge and a few more inches of fresh up top. Super beautiful with fresh snowy trees. Saw some other mountaineers heading up on our way down.
Next stop Pioneer coffee in then Mt Si...
since it was nice and maybe spring break week and Easter weekend the Mt Si trailheads were exploding!!!! Hoping we can get a parking spot after coffee...
Coffee hit the spot and ate lunch gearing up for number two of the day. Nice and sunny ;-) bonus we didn't have to wait too long for a parking spot to open up at Little Si TH. Super crazy busy!!! Alas after feeling like we were at the mall the crowds thinned as soon as we got onto the Boulder loop and were very minimal until the top. We all trudged up steadily at our own paces with Sean of course in the out of sight lead, then me and Mark not far behind. Even Ava was staying a bit more on trail at first before realizing her good fortune and taking the opportunity to get in a full day of running. Significantly less snow on Si over Tenerife and melting fast! Spots in the forest were being in a rain storm! The First Boulder opening was crazy with people everywhere with of course dance party music blaring... in excited people (of all ages) are getting out but are they really getting 'out'? To each their own. The benches were nice and quiet in comparison, just a couple young brags enjoying some Rainiers. Enjoyed a lovely and leisurely hike down followed by food and brews at NBBG.
