Swakane Peak continued to be one of my favorite rainy day and solitude seeking go-tos.
Officially kicked off my summer peakbagging endeavors on this Memorial Day weekend.
I had originally planned to include this high point when pups and I went out to Breezley Hills a few weeks back.
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.
Third time visiting this ridge since the first trip in winter of 2013, and so far the best weather out of all three trips.
Entiat River Road had been gated at mile 32 the last couple of years due to wildfires
The 41-mile drive on NF-8020/Cooper Mountain Road from Chelan, WA to Summer Blossom Trailhead was much less attractive than the trailhead name itself.
