Recommended Posts

Seems like Erik was at Index, but he hasn't yet revealed what he's been up to. PP was at Discovery Park this weekend so he has nothing to report BUT I am sure alot of you guys were enjoying the sunshine so spill the beans!

I forgot to mention that i got punched in the mouth... by a 30 lb. icicle... my tooth did not FULLY penetrate my lip but it did result in some red phlegm in the snow and instruction from a co worker today that I should stop brawling!

Well, my weekend was last thur/fri. I took the mutts on a hike up the abondoned deschutes river trail on thursday, and friday we wanked around on grey butte behind smiffy rox. amazing views were had from the top, a see of clouds with all cascade volcanos in site from bachy all the way up to adams. i'll post a panoramic shot once i get off my lazy ass and make it.

 

this actual weeked was spent watching the gapers flock to the high 50's sunny weather on the hill. is it spring already? blush.gif

Climbed Roosevelt, went in over frozen Snow Lake. Beautiful views of Glacier Peak, Rainier, all the Snoqualmie peaks. The last 300 feet up Roosevelt was quite steep and exposed, wish we'd brought a couple of ropes and pickets, but slow going and careful downclimbing got us out. What a great day Sunday was, thought it was supposed to rain, but beautiful all day. cool.gif

Ran a half-marathon in the Skagit Valley, but the fantastic views of Mt Baker during the run made me wonder why I wasn't up there instead. Anyone on Baker this past weekend?

Investigated the snowpack in the Wasatch. It's even worse than here! Beautiful spring conditions in January but with much less snow. Still, found a few hundred feet of okay recrystallized snow in the trees here and there and met some cool people.

Got in my first alpine ice experience Friday and loved it. Attempted Chair ... got three pitches up and bailed at 4:00. Basked in the sun, warm air and great views, though.

Yo-yo skiied north side of snow lake divde and east side of chair peak on friday...found some suprisingly good snow (even some powder). not bad for a week after the last storm.

Skied Saint Helens on Saturday, hardly anyone was up there. Had the summit to ourselves and had a good ski down to the parking lot (almost all the way, dry trail and pavement the last 1/4 mile)

Simu-climbed banana peal in 25 min on Sat. No one was on the Apron, then had dinner and got a bit pissed for the hike up the back side of the chief at 11 pm. Got to the top to yell at the wolves, or like one, depending on your interpretetion and drank some whisky. Good times. 5 humans and one dog on the middle summit in the middle of the night. Great stumble down by 3, but non the less a really good time. cool.gif
