Glacier Ranger Station at 0900.  Allow 2hrs from Seattle. 

 Note: this climb is actually June 5-6 (friday-saturday), not a 1 day trip, but the computer won't let me schedule it that way apparently, since there's another trip on June 6-7.

We'll hopefully camp somewhere in the vicinity of the black buttes.  Be prepared to camp on snow, and beware the ravenous ravens, who will rip open you tents in search of food!
