Trips taken with my Labrador Retrievers.
Poch Peak sits outside the Mount Rainier National Park above the Evans Creek ORV Park.
We had to forego plans A and B. Then we continued east and found Chandler Butte and McBee Hill.
With heightened avalanche danger, we resorted to Webb Mountain in the lowland forests by the Hood Canal.
Norse Peak VII, our seventh trip to one of my South Cascades favorites. All but the first trip have taken place during Thanksgiving.
We made an overnight trip to Deep Lake after spending the first part of the day on Chelan Butte.
We climbed Cape Horn and Ladies Peak as the black lab made his first overnight trip.
I spent the past two days alone on Easy Ridge. Then today, the pups and I explored Ugly Duckling.
We couldn't make it over to Fourmile Ridge three years ago. So here we were, three years later!
Dandy Peak was today's backup plan. We were also in the area two years ago on Dandy Mountain.
Today the pups and I went up to South Cle Elum Ridge East. We visited the west end back in April.
Today we sought out Beaver Tail in the Yakima River Canyon to avoid the rain in the mountains.
Today I visited Andy's Marine Park on Anderson Island while the pups were still in boarding.
I opted for somewhere new, and dry, after going up to Nasikelt Peak and Lumiere Ridge the day before.
Nasikelt Peak and Lumiere Ridge were perfect for finding solitude among the list of must-haves.
Table Mountain was also a last-minute idea. We left the house soon after it stopped raining in the morning.
As we drove through Snoqualmie Pass, I decided to ditch plan A and then go up to Rampart Ridge.
