Went back for another attempt at making an igloo. The snow conditions were even less conducive, but the weather was amazing. I took laps down some excellent snow in between block cutting for the failed igloo, we built a big fire, drank all the whiskey, and had a wonderful time.
This campsite is aces—big views of Hood, Adams, Helens, and Rainier as well as excellent access to some mild skiing terrain for beginners like me.
