Another great hike, I can feel myself getting my mountain legs together.  The views from this peak are incredible because you can see Seattle and the Puget Sound from the peak.  The rolling clouds gave a foggy, mystical ascent and a summit above the clouds.  It was a beautiful hike with interesting scrambles to reach the summit.

Forewarning, the road to the trail-head is a gravel road with plenty of potholes.  I got through it with my Honda Civic and saw other sedans at the trail-head, but it was tricky getting there.
