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!

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore, dream, discover.  -- Mark Twain
