Skykomish River, with a main stem of 29 miles, is a Washington river which drains the west side of the Cascade Mountains. It is joined by the Sultan River and the Wallace River at Sultan. It then meets the Snoqualmie River to form the Snohomish River at Monroe. ~Wikipedia
With the heightened avalanche danger in the Cascades this weekend, pup and I sought out places with minimal open terrain and settled on this woodsy mountain.
Taking advantage of the largely snow free southern aspect on the mountains, yellow pup and I tackled this harder-to-reach destination
With recent fresh powder in the mountains, climbing Crosby Mountain would have been an overly ambitious day-long endeavor
With a noon start and the indefinite closure of Road 63, I was happy to settle for just one high point.
Another super late start past noon. This one has been on the back burner list for a few years, and I finally found time to tackle it this season.
One thing that kept me from getting to the mountain all these years was the lacking in summit views.
Once leaving the road after 1.5 miles of walking, it’s everyone for themselves.
