Failed Attempt with Redwic Date Climbed: Jun 4, 2011
Redwic, Colleen, Robbin and I went to the top of Point 5721 "South Bowser Butte" by mistaken route-finding. We didn't care to finish Bald Eagle Mountain that day considering it was roughly 40 feet lower than where we ended up. This is a case where named high-points are not necessarily worth visiting.
Nice Finish To Great Weather Date Climbed: Oct 11, 2012
The northwest had gone 75-80 days without any measurable rainfall. The dry conditions were bad for the terrain (i.e. wildfires) but great for hikers. With the weather finally shifting back to rain the following day, I used the last great weather day to complete a summit trip that I had failed on last year due to too much snow and concerns of timing-out.
The north-central Washington Cascades have great areas for which to see and enjoy brilliant Autumn colors. Bald Eagle Mountain is no exception.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
