I visited WA's 2nd highest island on a rainy rainy day. That turned out to be a good choice as the trail is pleasant and for a trip in the dead of winter it was just fine. We too barely made the ferry over so we got lucky in that regard.
Island Peakbagging, Ferry Madness Date Climbed: Jan 30, 2011
With a bad weather forecast entering the weekend, EastKing and I were looking for a good winter choice. We found it, although in an unexpected area. The summit route was straightforward. The weather ended up being great, although with a strong cold wind. The summit area had little-to-no outward views. The most memorable part of the trip was the ferry aspect, where we *barely* made the ferry each way but with in-sync music playing to capture the moment.
