    Agreed.
    I brought 3.5 hours of hydration, which I figured was enough, but spent 5.5 hours on the mountain.
    Needless to say I had the cramping jimmylegs last night.

    Took the new CFR Vulcan to Terrace today, its a nice flyer.

    Oh, and Tom, we talked to the guys that helped Dee put the course in, I'm pretty sure they won't pull the baskets until the first snowfall, so as long as we don't get a freak storm, you should be good on the 29th.

      Tent camping is pretty much free and is help yourself. There are no designated tent spots.
      There are NO SHOWERS OR RESTROOMS in the camping area. Public Bathroom is open 24 hours in the main day lodge. 5-10 minute walk from the main camping area.

      There are several USFS campgrounds in the area along Highway 410 with bathrooms. You will need to get there early on Friday to get a spot because they will most likely fill up on Saturday.
      I appreciate the information!

      We decided to take advantage of the fabulous dicounted lodging at the Village Inn so I don't have to miss SportsCenter. Not sure how Jaymie is going to fit in a twin bed...but it might make for good pics on FaceBook!

      Looking so forward to playing a brand new course :-)

            Basic Format is that each division will play both the Summit Course and Lower Course. 1 round of 18 holes each day.

            Distance Drive Comp. format was explained just a few posts above..

            I played most of the Summit Course with Bro, Tim and Mike yesterday. It just keeps getting better.. The flowers and wildlife are simply mindblower.

              Is hiking up the only way to get to the Summit during the week, or are any of the lifts running? A few of us were going to come up for a casual round tomorrow, but my buddy's knee is only in good enough shape to play down.
              Don't just walk past that candy wrapper on the fairway-- I know you saw it!

                  I guess what I meant by "format" is how many throws do I get for $5?

                    From the following site: http://www.mtrainiergondola.com

                    "We are open daily until Sept. 11 and weekends until Oct. 2 for scenic rides on the Mt. Rainier gondola, mountain-top dining at the Summit House, hiking, horseback rides, disc golf and other fun summer activities. See you in the mountains!"

                      Directions from Spokane

                      So according to the CM website, Google and Mapquest the best way to travel from the East is Follow Hwy 12 West towards Naches. Turns into Hwy 410 and crosses over Chinook Pass (closed during the winter). Turn right onto Crystal Mountain Blvd. just after exiting Mount Rainier National Park.

                      Is there a short cut out of Ellensburg?

                      Is it better to stay on HWY 12 through Rimrock and meet up with HWY 123/410 on the South side of Rainier?

                      Just curious about the best way to get there...

                      Any advice is appreciated ;-)

                        Ready To Go

                        The courses are set and your time is here.

                        We are ready to LAUNCH another great Mountain High. Some of the crew was up at Crystal today getting the holes dialed in.

                        Thanks to everyone who helped get the courses ready. We have a great group of golfers registered but there is plenty of room. Make some last minute calls so we can increase the numbers.

                        We are really excited to see some of you from Spokane. Hope you bring a train of folks from the east side. From Ellensburg you can take the standard route to Yakima via hwy 97 or the scenic route on the Canyon Road #821. The Canyon road is a little slower but not much but much more scenic and offers some nice places to pull off and take a dip to cool off.

                        From Yakima take hwy 12 west to 410 west over Chinook Pass and through Mt. Rainier National Park (did I say scenic?). Stay on 410 west until you exit the park and turn right onto Crystal Mountain Blvd. Do not take 12 over White Pass because there is a lot of construction.

                        See ya tomorrow.

                          Depending on time we are looking to give everyone 5 shots within 5 minutes. We might reduce but hopefully not.

                            Doh!! Well, it was definitely worth it to play Shelton Springs, but I was pretty stoked to play Crystal. Next week for sure!

                            Thanks Ben!

                              Mountain High Wrap Up

                              Scores are up.

                              What a great weekend. Thanks to all that came up and participated.
                              This was a great bunch and it was a pleasure to meet all the new faces. Great to see the familiar ones also.

                              Awesome friends, weather, golf, fun and all the good stuff.

                              Hope everyone had fun and those that missed are getting siked for next year.

                              We still have a lot of mountain golf to play this year.

                              C'mon up.
