Oh my – this was an adventure. 8 up – 8 down – barely. Due to the extreme conditions, not all of us made it to the summit. Freezing rain, cold temps, ice, snow and FOG created hazardous conditions.  Only the crazy ones pursued the summit – ROGER (duh) and LIZA (no surprise there) – They climbed above the cloud cover to experience a brief glimpse of the tops of Mt Rainier, Mt Adams, Mt Hood and beyond. We were strong and determined, but both Liza and Roger said we made the right decision to abort. It was definitely unsafe and this story would have included casualties if we all continued. Still – fun was had by all.  So – next summer for sure. And congrats to our two heroes – Roger and Liza. Woohoo!!
