I haven't yet given up on my battle with my weight and health. Here is an album dedicated to my struggles and successes in the mountains. Hopefully you will see more mountains and physically a little less of me by the end of this year.

Nice job on the Sperry Peak page. That is one peak I've been meaning to climb in the winter.

As a suggestion when you are updating these pages and whatnot, you may want to add or update info and what kind of pass you need for parking at the trailhead. For instance, your Mt. Pilchuck page states the Discovery pass is needed at the trailhead, but right below that it makes it seem like you can use a NW Forest Pass... which I believe would result in a $99 ticket for your trouble.

As a general rule I'm going to start calling the appropriate ranger station to find out current info, but this may help some people out.

It seems at first blush that Discovery Passes are for State held lands (Tiger Mt, Mt Si, Little Si) whereas the NW Forest Pass was always for federal (Forest Service) lands). Am I wrong on this?

That seems to be the main point, but I am just paranoid that the state might possible buy either land or rights to land that was previously held by the FS... I personally will be keeping an eye an this in the upcoming "in" season, and see if more stuff out on the Mountain Loop and other areas may be changing over. This may impact my choice of yearly pass i guess, but I think last year's is until June so that's a while to decide.

I doubt that. The state doesn't have the funds to maintain the lands they have now so I have a hard time seeing them aquiring new lands. A couple of years ago the State tried to do a $5 dollar a day fee (maybe it was $2) which they quickly revoked due to decline in park attendance. The Discover Pass seems like a retread of the same idea although involving somewhat different venues.

Good Job Josh!

I'm warming up on creating pages by doing a Hut/Campground page for Three Fingers Lookout:
http://www.summitpost.org/three-fingers-lookout/780817

I will be working on it a lot in the next few days to make it nicer looking, so any suggestions on what I can do to improve it or any more info would be appreciated. edit: especially any images you can attach, that would be fantastic
