The day we hiked up Mt. Jefferson was VERY windy and cloudy.  Luckily, soon after we reached the summit the clouds disappeared and we had some fantastic views.

We took the Caps of the Ridge trail to the summit.  The trail would have been great if it wasn't for scrambling over the Caps.

Since the day turned out so nice, we decided to hike over to Mt. Clay.  It's about half way between Mt. Jefferson and Mt. Wasnington and the trail is entirely above treeline.
