Wondering what that big tower is named
I would guess Peak 6936 northwest of Tokaloo Rock. (46.84439, -121.84850) Photo was probably taken from the switchbacks on the Wonderland Trail between Klapatche and North Puyallup. Here it is from Lake Aurora.
The flatter one to the left (Not shown in my photo) is Point 6670 and has a Peakbagger page. https://www.peakbagger.com/peak.aspx?pid=114823

According to my map it is Tokaloo Rock, is that not it?

I'm no expert but the photos of Tookaloo Rock and Spire look different on Peakbagger. Which led me to conclude otherwise after starting at Google Earth for 10 minutes.
If you look at a topo map, the contours make it seem likely that 6936 is a volcanic plug-shaped object and 6670 is mesa-esque.
Lastly, consider the placement of the waterfall in the original photo with what's on topo.

Zig Zag to fuel truck.... Trail's kind of the same. Maybe two small blowdowns. Random rocks in the tread. Saw a red and balck snake sunning on the logging road. Modelo cans at a junction. I didn't pack them out. New grafitti on rocks. Buzz kill for me. Such a downer seeing this crap. Truck seems to have more of a list? Someone let air out of tires, target practice? PM me if you know of other vehicles or relics off logging roads. I like walking old roads on days when I'm not in the mood for a real climb. Some days need to be fresh for work the next day and not all sore. Got some sun. Was nice getting out, only seeing one other on trail and a just few peeps on the rail trail.

Went up Crystal lake trail to ridge, nice views of Tahoma light smoke moved in during afternoon. 0 berries.

I was interested in seeing how my knee would do on a hike, and Leafguy wanted to test out his new rescue dog in the wilds, so we did a half day hike to Twin lakes up the White River above Lake Wenatchee.

The dog did slightly better than my knee. We had a late lunch at the 59er dinner. The food was about the same as the last time I was there. But the music is still just as obnoxious as I remember it being back in the 50's/60's. And they need a few more waitstaff in that place.

Thanks for tolerating Sailor on his first trip out. He did pretty good for a 6 month old pup. He didn't eat our snacks or bring any bears back to us. I had to laugh when he went running back up the trail instead of getting in the car. I guess he liked it up there. I'm looking forward to the new hiking buddy. If I can get him away from my wife. He has been zonked out most of the time since we got back home. Hope your knee feels decent in the morning.

She Devil in Hell's Canyon Wilderness via Cannon Lakes. This is an alternate approach to the "goat trail" and is pretty much a walk up. Camp at Upper Cannon Lake. In combo with The Ogre which is also a walk up.
