2014/11/29 – Buckhorn Mountain / 鹿角山

Merciless wind

Holy ishhhhhht! Today we experienced the worst wind gusts of all the hiking we’ve done so far. It was breezy leading up to Marmot Pass, then all of a sudden out of nowhere the wind started blowing like crazy. Of course, the entire time going up the ridge we were fighting a headwind, but thank god Buckhorn was the closest high point.

We found sanctuary behind some large boulders since it was even harder to stand still on the summit. After a quick lunch, we started heading down the ridge in more headwind. Once we got back on the pass everything died down as if someone had flipped the switch.

Wish I could have enjoyed the views more being that it’s one of the few times I’ve been to this side of the Sound.
