Sleeping Beauty

Sleeping Beauty is a ridge west of Mt Adams that looks like a sleeping person from certain directions. It was once the site of a lookout tower. With a raging heat wave going on down low, I decided to camp on the summit, figuring that a place that was home to a lookout would have enough space. The trail is steep, gaining 1400 feet in 1.4 miles. I left at 6:30pm and got up in 45 minutes. Mostly it's a hike in the forest, but the top section is a trail constructed against steep rock. Most of the shots are of the sunset and Mt Adams, with some of a mountain goat that stopped by.
