Apart from Highway 20 fire closures, weather in the Cascades was questionable with a high percentage of precipitation. Another trip out to Umtanum Creek Canyon, but this time we scrambled up to high point east end of the ridge instead of walking down in the canyon like we did the first time.
Weather was quite warm but not terribly hot, and I should have remembered to pack more water for the pups. The only noises we heard were from dirt bikers riding back and forth on the ridge.
Nice eastern views on the ridge, including the aesthetic Yakima River Canyon. Glad we didn’t spot any snakes on this trip.
