Mailbox 5.17.11

At the trailhead this morning we were greeted by the always daunting sign reminding us of the strenuous nature of our objective; Mailbox Peak. The mountain revered as one of the most strenuous hikes on the I-90 Corridor, became our morning conditioner as we looked to increase our conditioning. The trail takes off like a set of stairs built by roots and rocks that goes on for 2 miles and 3000' then gains another 1000' in a half mile on open snow slopes leading to the summit. Today was one of those days without a cloud in the sky and one could see hundreds of miles away. On the summit we took our time to enjoy the views and admire the Emmons route on Mt. Rainier, which we will be attempting in shortly over a month. We then hurried down the trail so we could make it back into the city by 1 o'clock and get showered and into school for our 1:30 classes.
