Easy 2 Mile RT (or less) leads to this fantastic overlook of the Teanaway River Valley, Mount Stuart Range, Mount Rainier, Mount Adams and hundreds of other Cascade peaks.

All SOTA contacts were on 20M SSB, using my 20M inverted V dipole suspended fron a 22 ft. Carbon Fiber fishing pole.  I made 12 contacts in 8 states over approximately 30 minutes. 

After successful Activation, my team (wife Sharon & Dexter the Dog) and I descended to the base of Red Top summit rock formation, and continued north along the Teanaway Ridge Trail for a little more excercise, and continuing nice views in various open sections along the ridge top trail.
