Not much to say about this one. It's probably my favorite "close-in" hike and it's tough. This was my 3rd time up Teneriffe (this hike occurred on 6-21-2014). I didn't have any photos other than the obligatory pic of Mt. Rainier. I grabbed the selfie from a video I had apparently recorded up there.
Video says it was before 9 AM, I'd made it in 2 1/2 hours, and I was all alone. Looks like it was a beautiful day and as I stare out my window at gray skies I'm about jealous of me from back then.
I do remember this was the first time I'd encountered goats up close. Coming up the spine I stumbled across a mountain goat and a kid and before I could even react they bounded off over a cliff. I was also told by some hikers that showed up about 30 minutes later that they'd seen me on top and there were goats on the cliffs just underneath where I'd been standing when I made the video. Very cool.
Anyway, more details can be found at my prior reports of this trail here and here.
