The view was so very beautiful! My pictures don't do it justice. This is looking west down the Columbia. That's Beacon Rock down near the river on the bottom left.
It felt so good to reach the summit.
Looking east. Table Mountain is on the far left. Directly to the right of it is Mt. Adams, but it doesn't stand out very well in this picture.
Walking along a saddle away from the summit.
As you may know, Monday was a really hot day. We definitely drank a lot, and we were glad to get back to the creek, take our boots off, and put our feet in the creek for a while. This was probably the best hike I've done in a while.
