Riley Meadows

Post by drm » October 8th, 2021, 8:53 am

Four miles up the Riley Trail on Mt Adams, maybe my last hike in that area of the season. No other cars at the TH and no other hikers seen (no other human tracks in the snow).
Brand new signage - seems like saying the PCT is both straight and left might confuse some people, though it is true
lake at 5100'
one of the ponds during the dogleg north, with overnight ice that will melt with the sun
Getting snowier (~ 5300')
Lunch at Riley Meadow with a view of the Pinnacle on Adams
Riley Creek is still just a trickle, though it picked up in the hour I was there and will more during the afternoon

Ah, this reminds me of my late 2020 funemployment days on that side of Adams, scouring every nook and cranny. Great time of year for alpine hikes. Crowds are gone, bugs are gone, nice and cool.

Damn job. :cry:
