Good page. Perhaps "Washington Butte" is in Oregon.

Hi David. I"ll betcha this one makes you want to give up the Sierras so you could spend all your time ramblin through the Blues.



Actually, there is a part of the Blue Mtns that is loftier and more mountainous, the Elkhorn range down near Baker City Oregon, the southern extension of the Blues. The Washington part is the poor step sister.

Thanks for the vote, I am appreciative you took the time to vote on this one.

I've spent a lot of time in country that looks very much like that. I lived in Pullman for four years.

Hey, a you a Coug? Yeah, Pullman and the Palouse. Don't misunderstand me, I'm not rankin on the Blues, since they are pretty much in my backyard. I ski at Bluewood every winter a few times and l can look over and see where Oregon Butte is. I grew up in Calif and the Sierra's were what got me hooked on the mountains. A lifelong love affair with the range of light.

Yeah, I went to grad school at WSU. Now I'm back in CA. I actually didn't spend as much time exploring that area as I would've liked. On the plus side, I worked for the Forest Service during the summers in Targhee National Forest, so it wasn't like I was idle. :-)

Thanks Radek, your vote and comments are always appreciated. I've had a bum knee for the past two weeks so all i've been able to do is dream about getting into the mountains. Putting a page up helps me feel a little better about that situation.

I know exactly what you mean about doing SP related stuff when you can't get the "real deal"....we too recently had family in town for a couple weeks and I went thru. most of my pages trying to tweak/improve/mess around with them.....made me feel closer to climbing :)

Wish you a speedy recovery Dean!!

PS how did you injure yourself?

I've had a right knee that has bothered me off and on but not enough to stop me from getting outdoors. In doing 5 peaks in Nevada two weeks ago, I was coming down some talus on Mt. Grafton and something moved when I didn't and I did something bad to the knee that hadn't been done before. The physical therapist I saw said a "medial meniscus tear" He said it'd heal without surgery, most likely and that I should do these special exercises, see him once or twice a week for awhile for PT and realize that a guy my age is going to get injured just like a guy his age can. ; )



As Arnie says "I'll be baaaack"



Thanks for asking .

Hey Dean,

so do these special exercises include doing more peakbagging :) or did the PT guy tell you to lay off of mountains for a while? Sorry to hear about that. I don't necessarily think it's an age issue. Last summer my wife got injured (partially torn Achilles' tendon) and the doc. blamed it on 5 days inactivity followed by 2 days of kick a.. activity = shock loading the system. This season, my shoulder has been really bothering me for ~2 months now - ignore and wait for it go away strategy does not seem to be working (as it usually seems to).



Anyway, I was flipping thru. Rand McNally road atlas yesterday and noticed that there's an Oregon Butte in SE Oregon as well (for a sec. I thought your page was for that one). Wish you a speedy recovery Dean (look at it this way, at least it did not happen in the middle of summer :)

Thanks Bob. I hope your weekend was more exciting than mine so I've been putting up SP stuff. I had thought about doing Oregon Butte for quite some time but never could push myself to do it. Finally, I got around to it although my photos are skimpy and somewhat disappointing. Your pics of Charleston are outstanding.

I like your pix of OB much better than mine in the fog! On Charleston I tried to make the best of a harrowing situation, but didn't have the heart to photograph it like I should have. It was truly beautiful, but the will just wasn't there to take the time or freeze the body. Would love to have seen the view from up there!

The page is very nice but you forgot to mention why you really posted it : because it hasn't been climbed by Paul Klenke (or has it?) and was one of the few Washington mountains that could still be posted!

Thank you. I appreciate the vote and comments. The map was helpful to give people an idea of where t his one is located, in a forgotten corner of the state.

Thanks Brenta for the vote and comments. Somehow I missed the volcanoe spelling error but thanks to you I've corrected that.
