Didn't see a soul the whole trip. Also, Tent City 4 has moved. The hound misses his buddy that was living there.

Tiger is the mountain I've spent the most time on so I certainly love it too. I really love the K3/TMT Descent from WT2. And the One View Trail as it heads towards the saddle between WT2 and WT1 from Poo. And of course descending the Bootleg/Preston/Dwight route from WT1 to the East end of High Point. Tiger is awesome and I'm so thankful to have it in my backyard. I also noticed Tent City 4 had moved. I wonder why?

http://www.sharewheel.org/tent-city-4 Not why, but where....they do rotate periodically as I'm sure you know having spent time in the area. The host churches (in the past, at least) have had issues w/neighboring communities, perhaps High Point is a place of last resort at any given time, but that's speculation.

It is as though I had read a divine text, written into the world itself, not with letters but rather with essential objects, saying: Man, stretch thy reason hither, so thou mayest comprehend these things. Johannes Kepler

I've definitely seen them come and go over the years and I recall seeing that website before but I guess I assumed they just moved with the sweeps like most other encampments and were more-or-less left alone at High Point because it wasn't nearby any NIMBYs.

They moved to MQP in Sammamish near the city hall. Nothing to do with sweeps, it's the policy that the tent city organizing foundation has to ensure good partnerships and likely to prevent squatting laws from taking effect. Yes TC4 does tend to stay at high point for periods longer than the normal quarterly movement, probably a deal between the DNR. As far as I know from talking to the residents, they rely on the homelessness state of emergency and good grace of the DNR to camp there without permits more or less indefinitely, probably because it's unincorporated king county and not subject to the same laws. Tent cities aren't exactly the same as encampments along the freeways, they're managed by a nonprofit that vets residents and provides waste disposal. It's nice to see snow on tiger again. The clearcut looks beautiful with a blanket.
