Great hike up old logging road recently turned trail. Nice job on trail recovery. This was a late August hike and was a great fall day. On the hike up, the winds picked up creating significant white noise high up in the branches. We attained the high road which joins the Mount Si connector and finally went up the steeper section which ascends, descends and finally ascends again to reach the rocky summit. The win was blowing and the clouds were rapidly sweeping the summit making for an ominous experience. A long but fun hike with great views of the I90 corridor mountains. At the top the winds nearly took Carter over the edge. Fortunately I leapt up to grab him to ensure he did not take off like a kite!
