Norse Peak Wilderness is a designated wilderness area located in central Washington State. It protects the portion of the Cascade Range north of Chinook Pass (Highway 410), south of Naches Pass, and east of Mount Rainier National Park. It is bordered by the William O. Douglas Wilderness to the south. ~Wikipedia
The awesome weekend weather was too good to pass up, especially after yesterday’s outing
Crystal Mountain Boulevard was clear of snow and ice despite low morning temperatures, no problem getting to the gated Gold Hill Road
Time flew by us quickly while we were having fun, hard to believe it’s been three years since our last visit.
More rain this weekend, and South Cascades looked to be the place to be for a rain-free hike.
Our first hike to this peak and views were awesome. But it was soooooo hot!
