20.5 miles of hiking • 4500' elevation gain •
Led a group from the now-standard Bonneville Trailhead up through the debris slide to Table Mountain and beyond. We chose to go up the Westway Route, rather than the far more routine Heartbreak Ridge, and everyone seemed to agree that offered far better views. Once up top, we of course had to go visit the iconic south viewpoint, where the clouds really started to dissipate a bit. Even caught a bit of sun, and were kept company by the most entertaining ravens. After hanging a bit, we took the north exit off the mountain, followed the ridge a bit and reconnected with the PCT for our long return trip to the trailhead. Quite the day!
