We left early from work, tired, but unable to resist the lure of The mountain, as the day proved to be a beautiful day to snap pictures with a bright, blue sky as a backdrop, a fairly uncommon event in March. The Mountain was out!!!
We wouldn’t get far, maybe only half way to Camp Muir today, but we were able to get several good pictures…
View from the Parking lot, looking towards the mountain.
The Ranger Station, and bathroom entrance, under a blanket of snow. An approximate 184” depth.
Greg and Dave in the presence of The Mountain.
Yep! Goin’ up there! We would eventually climb this hill, on the way to Camp Muir. If you look close, you can see the trail zig-zag to the top, the small dots that look like ants, are people on their way.
The view back towards Paradise.
Again, pictures of the long trail, strung out back towards Paradise. You can see people on the trail, all along it’s length.
Snow covered Paradise Lodge, looking like a Christmas Postcard. You can see where people have tramped up and over the lodge, their footprints evident.
