Wanting an adventure and to get some August turns, ChronicRacing and I headed over to the North side of Mt. Hood to check out the Snow Dome. We left the suburbs around 6:30am, were hiking out of the Cloud Cap Campground before 9am, reached the top of Snow Dome around 2:15pm, and were back at the car before 5pm. It was a great day, an awesome experience, and the only thing I could think about at work today!
Here are some pics:
Word on the street was the creek crossing washed out.
Ohhhh wasssup dawg!!!
Looking to the Northeast.
Stoked to see the first cracks!
As we reached a shelf and a crevasse field on the Elliot Glacier the stoke was toned down a bit... Chronic scouting a line accross.
Crevasse rescue groups were practicing all day.
Now we go up.
Looking back at the crevasse field we crossed on the Elliot Glacier .
