7 a.m.

Mowich Lake trailhead to Ipsut Pass, exploring high meadows to NE of Eunice Lake.  We will explore scrambling the 5560'+ high point on the ridge to Gove, previously known by some as Irish Cabin Peak, then on to Gove, for about 2000' net vertical round trip.  Optional 2nd summit of Paul Peak, another Rainier 100 peak, moving cars lower down the road, would add about 3 miles and 1700' gain to the day.
