Looking Forward

Up in the summit of Mailbox Peak, North Bend, WA on 31 Dec 2013. Clouds cleared just a little bit to tease us with glimpses of other mountain peaks.

The original Raichle boots, back on the trail

Summer of '73 was the backcountry ranger in the Mt Margaret backcountry, wore these same boots (rebuilt twice) for over 90 days of hiking the lakes trail. Camped at Boot Lake the whole time. It took me 25 years to finally go back and see what the volcano did to my lakes. This is Bear Pass.

Beach Combing at Kopachuck

I'm sure most aren't fond of going to the beach in early January, but on a sunny day, Kopachuck was beautiful! Just bring a warm jacket and we wished we had thought of light gloves.

Summit and Sound

From the summit of Mount Ellinor, you can see clear across Puget Sound to the Cascades. Seattle, though a spec, is in there too.
