1. One foot in front of the other, up and up until we reached the snow line. Another mile or two beyond that brings us to a beautiful view of one of the four volcanoes in sight throughout the day. A snack, a beer, and then we follow the trail down the other side eventually leads us to a perfect view of the sun setting across the Columbia Gorge. A few miles back to the car in the dark. Sore feet. Happy.
