I hiked to the top of Green Mountain today.  This is the Green Mountain in Olympic National Park between Deer Park and Maiden Peak.

This is such an obscure peak that I doubt if even Stefan or Fay have been there, also it is not in the climber's guide and I have never heard of anyone going there so I thought I might get a first ascent but someone had left a cairn.  It is just a bump on the ridge so it makes me wonder why it is named on the map.

It is appropriately named however.  From a distance it is green with trees and there is not much in the way of views from the summit because of the trees.

I dropped off the traveling summit register and continued on to Maiden Peak for some good views.

Hiked on the Oregon side of the Gorge for the first time since last year's Eagle Creek fire.  Went about 7 or 8 miles up Herman Creek. Immediately east of PCT.  Interesting seeing the different degrees to which various areas burned.  Transition from the worst scorched area of all to completely untouched by the fire was almost instantaneous and rather dramatic.  I found out later several trails on the west end of the Gorge were just reopened today--Larch Mountain, Wahkeena, Angel's Rest.  Middle portion still closed with no target date for reopening yet.



I would post pictures, but screw flickr!  down.gif

Moolock 24 nov 2018.

This hike is often praised for the views, but as usual for me in Middle Fork area I didn't get to see any (previously I snowshoed West Green, South Bessemer etc. - and every time there was barely any visibility). The snow level is pretty high, a few inches of snow at around 3000 ft, but there was no need for snowshoes until around 4000 ft. No human footprints, but lots of deer and bunnies. I have never seen so many bunny prints, looked like they had a huge gathering the night before.

The road part is boring and tedious, but it does get better - higher up portion of the road seems to be not used anymore and is now so overgrown, I actually lost where the road is in places. Trees are getting bigger too. Not sure if it means more logging soon or they will finally let this mountain return to a more natural state. Snow is very unconsolidated and going was slow. The last scramble part is very steep. Previous trip reports seem to indicate going up boulder field, but there is not enough snow on the field yet and falling through into boulders is not fun. I went through the trees instead and had to crawl/veggie belay with Cookie in some places.

15 miles, 4560 feet gain.
