16.5 miles of hiking • 4500' elevation gain •
Whatta, whatta, wet, wet day! Rain from the trailhead (9am) to summit (12:30pm), and then some. Of course, on top, there was anywhere from a half- to four-feet of snow, and being a hearty 38° it was pretty much slush. Postholed past the knees wandering around up there, which wasn't for terribly long given the "views." Saw one other human up top, and one set of footprints heading off the north exit. The forest and the PCT was just magnificent. Great day to be alive!
