Climbing Mt. Adams

Posted by xccj , Jul 09 2012 · 231 views

So my family went on a little hike today. The idea was to drive up Mt. Adams to timberline, and then take a trail that led around the mountain. We only got up partway before the road was snowed in, and started up the trail with the assumption that the snow would go away. It didn't.

Yes, I hiked through snow today, in July, while it was 80+ degrees out. (Fahrenheit, obviously.)

And since snow is really reflective and everything, and it was really sunny, and despite the good amount of sunscreen I applied, I still managed to burn my entire face. I'd say sadface now, but it feels more like this: :burnmad: Either that or Red Skull.

On the other hand, I'm in the one part of the country that's not currently on fire, so I can't complain too much.

Woo! I hiked Rainier in July once and found snow. So cool!

Bummer on the sunburn though.

I'll be doing Rainier fairly soon. Definitely going to have to pick up some sunscreen.

Didn'tja hear? Red faces are the new "in"! :psychotwitch:

But hey, sounds fun. I love hiking and wish I could much more often. We should totally go on a hike at BCon (stay an extra day or something)!
