This was my first backpacking trip on Mt. Adams. Over the July 4th weekend I hiked up the Pacific Crest Trail to Horseshoe Meadow. Despite being a holiday weekend, I saw very few people.

At the Williams Mine trailhead.

Low down on the trail.

Snow starts to appear with this snow bridge. Melt water on the trail must have melted it out.
