Hard to seek out new destinations when weather hasn’t been willing to cooperate. Near 100% chance precipitation this weekend throughout most of the state, so we resorted to Eastern Washington for lighter rain. Black pup seemed to appreciate this relatively short and moderate new hike just north of Quincy, WA.

Once we drove through the city, getting to the starting point was straightforward by staying on Overen Road until the last left turn onto Road P. I parked the car outside the fence on the ridge crest at 2,700′, and then we started hiking due east. Muddy old road bed had many pockets of standing water, but easy to get around by hiking on the edges.

Before long, the lonely radio tower on top came into view, we walked toward it and stopped by the fence for a late lunch. Only 1.25 miles away from the car, possibly the shortest hike we had done. Glad back pup could join us on his first outing since Index Creek Trail last October.

A tad windy on top but no rain the entire time, we dodged the wind behind tall shrubs in back of the radio tower. Views of farm land and Beezley Hills Preserve to the south; Moses Coulee Preserve in the distant north. West of Moses Coulee was largely obscured by rain clouds with not much to see.

We moseyed our way back to the car after a long stay.
