Yup, Breakneck. Not a difficult answer for anyone who has been. Storm King is the prominent bulge across the river in many of the pics, and Bannerman's Island is a clear giveaway as well. Breakneck Ridge truly is an incredible hike.
Another weekend of superb hiking weather. This is from Sunday (yesterday). The front-side view from this fire tower is what everyone climbs this mountain for, but I think the view off the back side is pretty great too:
At Mount Rainier National Park on the Muir Snowfield yesterday. There are several spots in this area that offer year round skiing. Variable weather over the past several weeks resulted in poor snow conditions. The ascent to Camp Muir was really fun. The descent back to the car was survival skiing on August sized sun cups. It was a bumpy ride down on the snow to say the least. If you are looking to earn some Summer turns this is a straight forward option. MRNP is a shortish drive from Seattle. The Muir Snowfield hike can be done as a day trip from Seattle or there is lodging at Paradise. Even if you don't bring snow-gear, the scenery down low is absolutely amazing.
A few shots from the day
A pretty straight forward carry up to the snow (about 1.5 hours hiking)
