Had a half day so we went Home Court dumpster diving. Started in the afternoon and got Ugly Duckling, East Margaret, Microwave Hill and Keechelus. The bushwhack to Keechelus was unpleasant but not too bad. It would be better in the winter with some snow. HCL 44/100
I was saving this for a rainy day. Well, at least it was raining in Seattle & Bellevue... but I just experienced low clouds and foggy conditions on Keechelus Ridge. I drove to the top of Microwave Hill and then wet-bushwhacked through thick berry bushes, evergreen forests, and other plants to the true summit of Keechelus Ridge. Don't waste your time visiting these summits on a nice Summer or Autumn day; too many better peaks around.
