Alta-Glacier Vista

WA Cascades West Slopes South (Mt Rainier)

 After a more leisurely start, I found better than forecast weather, gusty but balmy with good vis.  The snow coverage is like a typical June; impressive to see how much lost just since yesterday's downpour.  I patched a way up Alta Vista, booted down then skinned up to Glacier Vista.  The gullies below Pan Point, and up around Pebble Creek, looked somewhere between "okay" and "interesting".  Linked rain runnels in gullies, patches, and rivulet crossings back to the Paradise Inn.

It is good news that you did NOT bring the camper for a night in the campground.😀

Way to go, Mack! It would be at the edge of my muster capacity to go out in the weather you described in this and the previous report :)

Thanks for sharing trip photos and cranking a few runs with me yesterday.
