drove the 4runner up to the trailhead saturday night, tossed down a pad and sleeping bag, and woke up to start hiking at 4:10 in the morning. my goal was to be on top by sunrise...alas, i was about 200 feet below the summit when the sun entered the eastern sky. luckily, i could see it all from the summit ridge. got to the top just after 6, and reveled for a half hour the changing light on the surrounding mountains. the only company i had on the ascent were 2 mountain goats who watched me for about 10 minutes before bounding off. all in all, a nice hike, and what a view! one of the best summit views of my 16 so far. after getting back to the car about 745, i drove back down to meet some friends for missouri mtn...
