  1. Easiest Hiking Summits

    Thanks, I used to be an advanced hiker but am now not in good shape. I've never been an ice-axe hiker but I lived in Minnesota much of my life so I'm probably somewhere above the level of the average beginner in comfort with ice.

    Many thanks!

    Since I made an account, I might as well ask -- What are some easy hiking summits in the Cascades? I haul around a lot of camera equipment and am nursing bad knees, but would love to get up high this summer.
  4. Peak Identification

    I'll be danged! My apologies. I triple-checked google earth and my books and found nothing. Funny that there are repeat peak names. Thanks much for the confirmations. I was having a devil of a time deciding if I was looking at the right spot. It's kind of odd how inconsistent the info is. A visual identification guide to the Cascades might be a fun project to keep me occupied for, you know, years.

    Townsend is in the Olympics. I think that's Eagle Rock.

  7. Peak Identification

    Hi, I'm an amateur nature photographer new to the area and trying to learn the landscape around here. I recently took a photo from the flood plain near Snohomish, looking ESE, and am trying to identify the front-range Cascade peaks in a particular photo. Would anyone be kind enough to lend some expertise? I have looked at the panoramas elsewhere on this site and am having trouble picking out what I am looking at. I actually bought a copy of the old Climber's Guide to the Cascade and Olympic Mountains of Washington hoping it would help, but now I come looking for expert advice. I'm a Midwestern lad, our "mountains" have quotation marks around them. cascades by Archimedes the Dog, on Flickr I think that is Index in the center, peeking out from behind, what, Persis? What's on the left? Gunn?
