This grouchy old guy found a nice 1700' NNW fall line but did not enjoy the 4-8" Cascade corn meal mush covering it. Now you kids need to tell us all about the awesome crisp corn you found!

Silas, I sense you may be holding some inner anger about the oncoming summer.
How deep was the snowpak at the pass?
Was there adequate cover for ski travel at will?

"Silas, I sense you may be holding some inner anger about the oncoming summer."

...ask Silas how he "feels" about his new yellow La Sportiva euro fit pants - this may have contributed to a constricted view of the day.

^I thought those hot pants looked good, Silas. Sorry about the shitty skin track...side hilling the PCT did not work out as well as planned.

The snow was pretty ok today on south through west  aspects. The air was rather moist though! Never quite rain but the persistent fog did verge on drizzle toward the end of our tour... So much for our hopes  that the partly sunny afternoon forecast would come true.

Today on Monday June 12th, we chose the SW ridge of Naches Peak to the false summit due to the Braille like navigational challenges.

As Jim mentioned the mush factor was not too bad without solar warming.

There is continuous snow from Tipsoo lakes to the false summit, but the snow on the SW ridge will not last for long....

Can someone tell me definitively whether or not I can ski with my dog (legally Smiley at Chinook? (I'm under the impression you can only take your dog, leashed, on the PCT...

Thanks!!

East of the summit you are NOT in the MRNP. Look at the map, stay outside of the Park border, and you and your dog should be good.

Look at the map

LOL wow, what a gaper I am, eh? I'm a total maphead too! I had just Googled "Dogs at ChinooK" and that's as much as I did. Thanks!!
