September 19, 2011

Start: 2402
End: 2421

What a great day! The sun was shining, the birds were chirping, the elk were singing, the marmots were whistling, and the pika were squeaking. It's as if the animal kingdom, us humans included, were celebrating the beautiful weather, knowing that things are about to change for the wetter and colder.

We had a good climb out of Snoqualmie Pass followed by a ridge walk that had us meandering every direction, including South, before getting back on the northward track. There were amazing views for most of the day after we got to the Kendall Katwalk. We even caught a glimpse of Mt Rainier in the late afternoon. Hopefully the next couple of days will bring more of the same!
