Quick trip up Washington (Snoqualmie) today only saw two people Chester Morris has more water than last year, go figure. Trail is still rocky.

I went up to see my mother and sister last week, and deliver some pies for my brother-in-law. My sister and I went for a little walk down to the beach. These are a couple of her photos:

I did a hike to South Chilco and Chilco Mtn just north of Coeur d'Alene starting from the southern trailhead on Rd 406. Nice trail which has been re-routed from it's original mapped location in places to make it less steep and rutted. The south peak summit is 20' higher and is actually in the trees north of the sign but the north peak has the better views and was an old lookout site.

Quick trip to see the larch progress up to Sunrise Lake off Foggy Dew. Chilly evening served up the total delight of wolves howling on the ridges around.

Guye, Lundin, and Snoqualmie.

My previous hike up Guye only went as far as the north summit, so I wanted to hit the main.  Crux is coming down the other side of the north summit, which is easier than it looks, maybe class 4.

Lundin west ridge was a bit spicier (~15 ft of exposed class 4) and then you've got that plaque on top as a reminder of what can go wrong.

Ran the ridge all the way to Snoqualmie, including the gendarme at the end, which was also a little exposed, but could probably be gone around on either side.

Day started out crystal clear but by afternoon smoke from the east started to roll in.

That looks like a challenging, but rewarding day trip neek. Pretty rough terrain as evidenced by the plane crash and the climber’s memorial plaque!

Tuesday was an exceptionally beautiful day to be up at Sunrise celebrating 50 years of hiking together with my best girlfriend!

Had a fun day trip up to Hannegan Peak with Hiking Partner and my little brother, who I also have been hiking with for over 50 years, if you count all the trips Dad dragged us around to. wink.gif I believe one of our first dayhikes together was up and back to Waptus Lake, about 18 miles, without flashlights or headlamps, great fun coming back in the dark. lol.gif
This was a rare visit for me to the north side of Mt. Baker, due to the long drive, but my brother, who lives on Camano Island and visits Baker often, promised I would love it. He was right, the views and fall colors were fabulous, and a grand time was had by all!

The vine maple was in peak color.


The huckleberry bushes on the side of Hannegan Peak were so bright red it was almost surreal.


The territorial views into North Cascades were splendid!


We had spectacular views of the Ruth Glacier and the north side of Mt. Shuksan as we reached the summit of Hannegan Peak.


Still hiking together after 50 years.


The evening light was lovely as we hiked back down.


As usual, we got back in the dark, this time with headlamps and flashlights, always trying to make the most out of an amazing day.

One of the highlights of our trip was dinner at Frosty’s Cafe in Maple Falls, where we had a delicious dinner despite the fact that we showed up right as the restaurant was closing, and they graciously served us anyway. Thanks Frosty’s!

This post falls into "this really bugs me" category. It goes along with "why do people pack a 6 pack of beer into a destination and not bother to pack out the empties?" This happens to do with dogs. I have no problem with dogs on trails if under control. It has to do more with the owners. We took a short hike to some falls on the Deschutes Sunday. A dutiful owner had scooped up their dog's poop, put it in a plastic bag and left it along side the trail. It was a short dead end trail and no other hikers around, so I assume the owner and already left the scene. So there was the dog's contribution safely enclosed in the owners bag left for someone else to police up. I don't see a problem of just kicking the remains under a bush and letting nature take it's course.
