I followed another's report from WTA going in yet ANOTHER way.. man, there's alot of ways to get here! I went FS 72 to 7250 nice views of the mountain here too! A whole area I hadn't been in.
I got up early to catch this


Hit the trail, easy going, just a little up, at times I felt like i was on a bike trail but that's my only complaint of the day.


Then I see these guys!


I came for fall color, and i got some


I took a right instead of a left and might have gotten lost for 30 mins, but i figured it out and backtracked and made it out alive! If i didn't get lost on a FS RD once a year I wouldn't be me!  embarassedlaugh.gif
Great day out!

Great photos!   We were up there the day before you and did not get photos as good as yours of the mountain goats; here are my photos (including too many of Rainier, for some folks):

Loved the sunrise shots.  I have never seen goats up there.  You are a wildlife magnet!
