The Mt. Adams Glissade from Willis Wall on Vimeo.

Mt. Adams is the third tallest volcano in the Cascades and if you have a 16-year-old daughter you might be able to get her to trek it with you. Like Steve Burgess did. Minimal equipment needed to ascend the 7000 feet, just crampons, a mountaineering axe, and, well, waterproof pants. "But just like randonee skiers who 'earn the turns'," he tells us, "the trip to Mt. Adams can be one of the best glissades going, and when you're rocketing down the slopes you soon forget all the negatives and the hours of getting up there."

Ah ha. Now I see.

Enjoy it, good people. It's a fun ride.

The Sunday Morning Chillax? Here's the idea. It's Sunday. You're up early. You're enjoying a cup of coffee in the quiet morning while your kids sleep in. No need to read, this is always a video; something to give you happy thoughts about mountains, fresh air, stoke, fun, or being outside. Enjoy. Relax. And, um, not guaranteed to be weekly — hey, you get what you pay for and it's a dang good bargain.
