one hike a week circa 2010
Within Washington State, U.S. Route 97 (US 97) is a 322-mile (518 km) route which traverses from the Oregon state line in Maryhill to the Canada–US border near Oroville. ~Wikipedia
We followed the partly sunny weather forecast to the east of the Cascade crest.
Swakane Peak continued to be one of my favorite rainy day and solitude seeking go-tos.
Pup and I have been chasing after big mountains nonstop since Memorial Day weekend.
Like Genius, my effort to include the peak in two other trips was also to no avail.
I first took notice of the beautifully glaciated Entiat River Valley atop my first of the Washington highest peaks.
In preparation for next day’s climb, pup and I headed to this one of our back burner list destinations east of the mountains.
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.
