Trips taken with my Labrador Retrievers.
The last time I was here, I had to bike eight miles to access the Downey Creek Trailhead.
McGregor Mountain marked my fourth time going through Stehekin, WA, on the way to a climb.
This double-summited, awe-inspiring structure at the head of Ross Lake looked out of reach.
Gilbert Peak was my objective two years ago until I drove up to the seven-mile road closure sign.
While many scrambles involve some road walk or trail hike or both, Bald Eagle Peak had neither.
Now that the Stevens Pass area was a ghost town, it was an even better time to visit.
This time we came back with a raft twice the capacity to put the pursuit to rest once and for all.
After yesterday's strenuous outing, I found this new and relaxing hike east of the crest.
Goat Mountain in Salmon La Sac has been on the back burner for many years.
While looking for a new hike that didn't require snow gear, I realized we could go to Mission Ridge.
The pup and I visited Cascade Mountain's northern neighbor for a view do-over.
The hike to Coney Creek crossing at mile 3 was at times rocky but overall smooth sailing.
