Favorite thing: These white tufts are referred to as the Pearly Gates, presumably because the summit of Hood lies just beyond them. I don't blame this hiker for gaping. I saw similar photos of the "gates" many times, and was awed to be standing so close by.

Hood's summit was edging closer. Although we had some steep uphill terrain to cover, via a different route.
