4 miles of hiking • 1000' elevation gain • 1 night

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.


Nat Turner and Roman heart this trip.
