I did it!! Left on Saturday, 8/19/06, at 7:30 a.m. Didn't take the dogs. It would have been SUICIDE. There were about 10 cars at the trailhead. Didn't encounter anyone until about 1-2 miles from the lookout (a man and his daughter). Saw about seven mountain goats. Made it behind the snow, going along the rocks. If I wouldn't have been able to do that, I wouldn't have made it. I would not have tried to make it across the snow without an ice ax. Saw two more people just before the top. One last trek up all that snow. I kept thinking, "Where's those ladders?" And then there they were. Got a couple pics. Awesome. Nice and creaky. They were something else. Almost there now. Top of the third ladder, grab on to the rope, take a couple big steps. YES!! I'm there. There were two people there. They took my pic. What a view. Absolutely unbelievable. Signed the book. Took back and mailed what others had filled out about the mountain goats.
I'm going back in 2007, with my new digital camera. Looking forward to it!!
