Trail conditions were great and the weather offered pretty much every condition except for heat! Was cloudy at the start, had a rain shower, stopped raining and had some interesting views of clouds in the distance at all different  levels.  And as we approached the summit, the wind picked up, there was ice on the wiring of the weather station as well as the fire lookout tower. As we started to descend it sleeted for a few minutes and then the skies started to clear. About 2 miles from the truck we saw sun, and as we drove east towards Sisters,  we could see the entire summit clearly. 🤦‍♀️
