Cave Ridge and above
It was a promising morning, with very nice soft snow and some clearing skies. Good coverage in Commonwealth, no trouble with stream crossings (second log bridge upstream is very easy). Reached the top of Cave Ridge with excellent views, snow still good. The valleys nearby and some summits were beginning to collect fog. The round east summit of Snoqualmie still looked clear. The ridge up that way had lots of firm windpacked snow, but I did not find any slabby deposits. Fog arrived to the summit just as I did, and I was also greeted with an awesome fogbow and Brocken spectre. On the descent, south slopes made lots of snowballs, but no further instability. And the trees down Cave Ridge still had good (though increasingly moist) snow. Once I reached the exit, tree bombs were going off everywhere, and the warmth was a little surprising. Very foggy over at Summit West.
