Park Butte Sunrise and Sunset Overnight Hike

A friend of mine had never been to Park Butte so we decided to overnight up by the various tarns to get a view of Baker at sunset and sunrise. I got my overnight pack down to 22lbs, which included camera, tripod and several lenses and a subway extra meat footlong. The trail is in great shape, and the snow really starts past the Railroad Grade junction. We camped near the various tarns in the rock garden east of the lookout. Low clouds started rolling in around sunset and were still there in the morning. We saw a few parties heading to the lookout and one group camped at Railroad Grade, but saw no one as we headed back out in the morning.
