Mt. Adams dominates
the landscape from our
first summit of the day -
Nannie Peak

past green Sheep
Lake we go....
,
wildflowers
galore keep us
company
,
waterfalls in the lush
green of Cispus Basin
,
magical carpets
of wildflowers
grace our path
,
,
the trail takes
us past a
gorgeous
glacial tarn
,
,
a portal to
another world
,
we explore
the ridgeline
of shattered
rock, like
walking on a
dragon's back
,
old snowy
5th highest peak in
the Goat Rocks at

a perfect perch
to watch the sun
go down
,
night falls as we
descend to camp
,
sunrise from camp
as we get ready for
a long haul the
next morning
,
we head back
up old snowy

just up there
