I took the old Cascade Crest Trail and enjoyed the solitude on this abandoned route through Commonwealth Basin.

The sun shone between the trees as I worked my way along the trail and over the creek.

I got my first view of my goal and I was anxious to get up there.

I came up under the mountain and was too anxious to get up and left the main trail too early it turned out. I had found a faint boot path and started up.

The way up was challenging but fun. It was mostly Class 2 with some loose rock along the way. At one point I had found the trail but quickly lost it...
Finally I reached the summit and the awesome views that it afforded.

After about 20 minutes on the summit I noticed a fellow hiker making his way up. Once at the summit we chatted a bit and then learned that he was "Red Hat Guy"! Very cool  cool.gif  It's always fun to meet a fellow NWHiker on the trail.
We descended the mountain about 30 minutes later and the trail was very easy to follow, much easier than the route I took to the summit. We made good time getting back down to the parking lot.
It was a fun day and great to meet you Red Hat Guy!

Red Mountain was one of the most fun peaks I did on I-90 last year.  Glad to see you made it up there even though it was a solo (my fault).  But really, Dude, I have to say it once again, your videos ROCK!

Hey Bryan, nice to meet you at the top of Red.  I hope you didn't get as chewed up by bugs as I did ...
