TnargOutstanding View  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 2, 2017


We made a loop from the Samish Overlook parking area on Blanchard Mountain to Oyster Dome. It was a sunny day with lots of snow, and the views were fantastic! On a side note, driving the road to Samish Overlook while snow covered is NOT recommended....

Went over to the overlook on my way up Blanchard Hill. Quite a few people coming up as I was going down, given that it was a mediocre foggy weekday morning.

Great trail loop from the Overlook Parking Area. Fine place, nicely maintained trails, awesome views! With Lillian, Diana, Sean, Tugboat and Whistler. Lots of trail traffic on the front or more popular side and at the top of the cliffs. The back side was very quiet.

Perfect day. 4-6 hang-gliders were floating overhead at the Samish Overlook.

Took the longer route up, and while there were a few folks on the trail, I was shocked at the masses near the summit. Bypassed them for some solitude near the true summit.

I don't blame them...it was an outstanding day to be up there. Just the same, I took the long route back to avoid the crowds.

Topped out on Mount Oyster Dome today ... tried a new descent route that involved slipping off the damp slabby rocks near the top. Lots of trail work being done current by the WTA that is improving / switchbacking some of the steeps near the top

Hiked up with all climbing gear, but ended up just soaking up the views (and sun rays). Great napping point.

I've probably hiked up here a dozen times, but was never able to find a page for Oyster Dome on here! I love this hike to the top, and the views on a clear day are astounding. I'll be coming back for decades to come!

Hiked in from Chuckanut Drive. Great day with a spectacular view from the top. I really wished I had brought my climbing gear. A local climber said the bolts are pretty sketchy and they shouldn really be replaced soon.

of the San Juans. The trail is in bad shape from all the wind storms lately. I've never seen so many downed trees.
