David_Parker Posted December 1, 2009 Share Posted December 1, 2009 (edited) My son and I climbed Mt Townsend on Sunday. Patches of snow on the trail in the woods and once to the main gulley (all snow)we just basically headed straight up, eschewing the trail. Snow was consolidated with corn layer! Occasional post hole, but otherwise firm. Wish we brought skis! Puget Sound had a double cloud layer with obvious rain shadow from Port Angeles to PT. Mt Rainier only thing visible in Cascades. The butt glissade down was really fun and fast. A few parties of hikers in inappropriate footware didn't get very far past the woods. For a flat top (more of a ridge) summit, the view is still amazing...good bang for the buck! Edited December 1, 2009 by David_Parker Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
