From the summit of Teneriffe, looking back along the route.
A great weekday hike to the summit of Teneriffe via the road trail. This was my first trip on this route. There was snow on the trail near the final turn up the ridge back, but it's very manageable. There were also places where water was running across or down the road, but again it wasn't an issue.

The trail through the trees approaching the first peak and in the saddle between the peaks was a little hard to find at times, but heading in the same general direction worked well to get from point to point.

The weather was great for the trip, which I started at 8:00am. There was partial sun, but no real wind. A little more of a breeze up on top would have been nice to mitigate the bugs. I had plenty of repellant on so I wasn't getting bit, but I did seem to have my own personal cloud of diminutive critters following me around.

On the way down, just before reaching the junction to the Kamikaze trail, I met a lady walking two German Shepherds, one of which tried to attack me. This is the second time I've been attacked by a Shepherd on this road. Folks, if you can't control your dogs and can't trust them around other people, LEAVE THEM AT HOME.

Diablo Lake

North Cascades

Follow the Diablo Lake Trail up and across talus slopes on the flanks of Sourdough Mountain to impressive cascading waterfalls and stunning views. This hike in the North Cascades Institute's backyard makes a great option for an early season hike in stunning North Cascades National Park, much of which is inaccessible during the winter and spring.
