Steph_Abegg Posted January 21, 2013 Share Posted January 21, 2013 (edited) Trip: Cascades Volcanoes Aerial Tour: Rainier-Adams-Hood-Jefferson-Sisters-Shasta-Lassen-Hood-St. Helens-Rainier (and more!) Date: 1/19/2013 Trip Report: "Here's what I'd propose: Depart Concrete at dawn and head for Rainier, passing by its east side. Then pass around the east side of Adams and then turn to Hood. Then Jefferson, Three Fingered Jack, and Mt. Washington. Land in Bend for a bit of rest & fuel. Depart Bend for Three Sisters, Broken Top, Mt. Bachelor, Mt. Thielsen, Crater Lake, Mt. McLoughlin, Shasta, and down to Lassen. Then back up to Bend for fuel. Stretch legs, depart back north. Pass by Hood again (sun on west side), then Mt. St. Helens, and finally back to concrete passing by the west side of Rainier. That would be the dream itinerary. This would definitely qualify as The Grand Tour." -Email from John Scurlock to Steph Abegg, two days before enacting The Grand Cascade Volcanoes Aerial Tour with textbook precision. Baker to Lassen, and back in time for dinner. Wow.
