Spectacular views highlighted this leg of our hike. I burned up most of a roll of film on the scenery of Adams, Rainier and Goat Rocks. We turned onto the PCT at the junction (never made it to High Camp)and headed towards Muddy Meadows Trail. The PCT leg was also remarkably scenic and boasted two, large waterfalls. Descending the MM Trail was a disappointment due to thick timber obstructing any views for most of the way. However, the MM Basin area opened up for more rich photo opps with Mt Adams in glorious alpen glow. I'd do it all again in a second!
