August 15, 2010: Vista Ridge & Sunset on Mt. Hood, Oregon

Got on the trail just after 3:00; hiked up Vista Ridge to Eden Park & Cairn Basin; watched the sun set on Mt. Hood from a ridge above Wy'east Basin; returned to the trailhead in darkness. I'm proud to say I made it all the way down without turning on my headlamp once... the first-quarter moon helped a little.
