The Cascade Range or Cascades is a major mountain range of western North America, extending from southern British Columbia through Washington and Oregon to Northern California. It includes both non-volcanic mountains, such as the North Cascades, and the notable volcanoes known as the High Cascades. ~Wikipedia
Mount Degenhardt was my third and final trip to the Pickets this season after last week.
Mount Fury has been on my radar in recent years. But the remoteness has had me put it on hold until now.
I had my first close encounter with Liberty Cap from the main summit (Columbia Crest) in 2013.
Blue Slam, aka Agnes Mountain and Gunsight Peak, was another remote climb in the Glacier Peak Wilderness.
Mount Challenger West Peak could have been part of our Northern Picket Traverse three years ago.
On this Fourth of July weekend, I went tackling Le Conte Slam via the famous Ptarmigan Traverse.
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.
Big Methow Needle, or The Needles, has been on my list for several years because I couldn't find a partner.
Ten years after setting the goal to hike (at least) once a week, I celebrated the 10th anniversary on Lincoln Peak.
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.
Whitehorse Mountain has been famous for as long as I could remember. So it never made it onto my list.
After yesterday's short trip, today, we visited Catkin Peak and McCall Mountain by Dirtyface Mountain.
