[Mountaineering] (06/03/18) Mt. Saint Helens Summit
- Sarah and I did this hike in two days! The first day, we arrived at a lodge in a town called Cougar near Mt. Saint Helens. That evening, we did some easy hikes and explored the Ape Caves. Second day, we woke up pretty early to ascend the route.
- Going up 5.7K ft is definitely the most I've done in a single day! I didn't have too much weight in my pack though so it didn't feel as hard as doing camp muir with a 45lb pack. I had to use some microspikes and gaiters near the top as it got pretty snow-covered.
