Crescent Mountain 2022

The group hike John Sweat was leading up to Crescent Mt. had no takers, so he went solo.  It started as a rather balmy ascend to the summit with no issues with mosquitos surprisingly,  thank goodness.  The wild flowers were still present and maybe a tad early for the Bear Grass to be in full bloom.  The view at the summit was outstanding:  Mt. Adams (or Mt St Helen) to the north and Diamond Peak to the south were visible.  On the descent a westerly breeze had developed which made for a pleasant return.  Overall it was a very nice experience.
