Up On Cascade Mountain

To get warmed up we hit Cascade. We arrived just before 3:00, and hardly expected to summit, but as we got closer, not reaching the top was no longer an option. The trail was nicely packed, and the temperature was around 5 degrees at the base. The air was perfectly clear.

But on top it was about 10 below zero, winds around 40 mph (Colden and Algonquin in the background). We stayed on the peak for about a minute. David White on top of Cascade Mtn.
