Parking lot had only two cars parked on a sheet of ice when we arrived in late morning.
The area had more snow when we last visited two Decembers ago. Temperature reading of 17°F at the start of the hike, felt much colder than being in higher elevations in the mountains.
A relatively quick plan B trip to other side of the mountains for better weather
Rain all weekend long in the Cascades gave the excuse to do our first fall hike out east
