A team-building outing with my work group. Thirteen people in total -- a big group -- and with some first-time adirondack hikers along for the ride, the prudent choice was something short but scenic: enter Cascade Mountain!
With cool and mostly cloudy weather above, we started off at around 10am, made very good time for such a large group, and summitted right around noon. A cold frost the previous night meant no bugs, even down in the trees. A very welcome situation!
Although the day was not clear, the cloud deck was high and not continuous. Views were not at all impacted, which is a good thing for a hike to such a nice summit as this one. After a summit lunch break, it was two more hours back down to the cars, for a total of roughly four and a half hours. Good job by all!
