The name tells you when to visit: Come early so you can be up on the summit as the sun rises in the east, bringing the massive snowcone of Mount Adams to life. Seeing the sun throw brilliant golden light onto the snowy white peak first thing in the morning is a wonderful way to start a day. But, fortunately for sleepyheads, it’s not the only time to experience the magic of this route. Sunrise can be enjoyed at high noon and even at sunset—indeed, some of my favorite moments on Sunrise are at sunset, as the last rays of the day cast long, dark shadows across the deep valleys and sprawling ridges of the Dark Divide Roadless Area.
