one hike a week circa 2010
Today turned out to be the only sunny day in the week’s forecast. On the spur of the moment, pup and I got in this short climb in mid-afternoon.
With the heightened avalanche danger in the Cascades this weekend, pup and I sought out places with minimal open terrain and settled on this woodsy mountain.
Word has it that construction of a new trail to Dirty Harrys Balcony had been underway. Unsure of the new trail’s whereabouts, we entered via the old roadbed.
After three consecutive weekend visits to Eastern Washington due to incessant rainfall, we finally got our first sunny outing and a new high point.
Ever since our trip to Moolock Mountain in 2012, I had dreaded to ever set foot on the seemingly never-ending Bessemer Road.
Three cars parked by the snow berm on Kachess Dam Road (NF-4818), a few hundred feet in from Sparks Road.
Third time visiting this ridge since the first trip in winter of 2013, and so far the best weather out of all three trips.
Armed with optimal weather forecast and moderate avalanche danger, pup an I continued our New Year’s tradition on this beautiful mountain.
Last hiking slash scrambling slash snowshoeing slash climbing trip of 2017!
Due to a higher chance of snowfall in the mountains on Christmas Day, we postponed our trip to today.
