Buzzed on Mount Adams

Long story short, (aren’t all of these posts just the short version? I’m so lazy…) Dean and Mark and a couple of Mark’s friends from work, Tom and Kyle, headed up towards Mount Adams on the last weekend of May. Weather was mostly cooperative, and we were nearly successful, except for a slight case of electricity that greeted us about 200 feet shy of the summit. We made it safely down to our high camp at 8500′ though, and after a long walk out enjoyed some amazing food in Hood River. Since this is officially an Alt.Slick. Terrible Trip Reportâ„¢, I’ll just keep it short and promise to update it at a later time and throw down some photos instead.
