one hike a week circa 2010
McLeod Fire in mid August forced the closure of many roads and trails near Mazama.
I first took notice of Big Jim Mountain six years ago from Frigid and Big Lou Mountains via Chatter Creek.
Seven years had passed since we first set foot in the beautiful lake basin en route to Labyrinth Mountain.
Taking advantage of the nice weather before sundown, pup and I headed off to Middle Fork Snoqualmie River Valley.
Last September we had a good run up to the very last weekend before weather conditions worsened.
Corteo Peak hadn’t always been on the radar despite having taken notice from various mountaintops over the years.
This could very well have been the shortest climb with the shortest approach on the list so far.
Highway 20 felt very much like a ghost town on my drive to Easy Pass Trailhead.
Pup and I were supposed to climb the mountain same weekend we climbed the Napeequa peaks.
Getting to base camp with good route finding skills, one can certainly enjoy the views abound without ever leaving camp.
