I had plans to hike it last summer, but i couldn't get the permits, so i ended up climbing rainier instead, lol.

Maybe i'll get permits this year. If not, it'll go on the back burner again :(

Thanks everyone. I am hoping to do it counterclockwise in nine days, late August. I have a sabbatical this summer, so have some flexibility about dates, which I am hoping will help the permit process.

I have spent lots of time around the Mountain.  It is difficult to get a permit.  The weather tends to be wet and cool, although recent summers have been an exception.  There are lots of places outside the park where a permit is not required with better weather.

Walk-in permits are easily obtained if you are mildly flexible with mileage. After being skunked on permits 2 years ago, I'm glad I took the advice of the local "guru" (williswall.com - ran into him in the North Cascades, really nice guy) and just walked up for my permit. Worth the trip. Spray Park alternate- Take it!
