man, you go through life, you try to be nice to people, you struggle to resist the urge to punch 'em in the face, and for what?

And me! This past Sunday I originally had bigger plans, but after finding an injured musk rat in the morning and transporting it to the hospital, I lost a lot of time and had to quickly change plans in order to hike something easier and shorter, so Cabin Mountain it was.

Anyway, while not much to is to be expected from Cabin Mountain, it actually does have some fun aspects. After zig-zaging in and around railroad tracks, private gates and powerlines you finally come to a giant boulder field ridge almost straight up to the top. The field itself is not giant (thankfully it is only about 0.5 miles, but the boulders are giant). It is now already extremely hot and snow is very heavy and wet and some creeks are opening up and maybe already in a few weeks there will be not enough snow coverage to safely climb the giant boulders, but this time I only really fell through up to my neck once and was able to climb out. The way is steep, but snow is open and fun. There are views to all three big lakes/reservoirs around snowy Keechelus lake, snow free Kachess and snowy Easton. Far to the east Columbia river foothills are still snowy. Up north views start from the dry Easton ridge up to rugged Ingalls peak ridge. The summit itself opens up to Mount Rainier and just south of the summit there is also a fun open rock to scramble that gives an even more open view.
