This is a view of Mt. Misery...
This is a view of Mt. Misery from the east (from near the Asotin County Highpoint). Beyond Misery but not quite visible is Diamond Peak--Garfield County's Highpoint. Oregon Butte is about 10 miles west of this spot. There are then three WA county highpoints along the south-facing rim of the WA Blue Mountains. It all looks the same: low-angle north slopes, steeper south rim, horizontal striations occupied by trees. August 2004.

Whoever named this peak had never been up North Gardner or Mt. Grafton down in Nevada. Still, this is a non spectacular part of washington state with hardly any lakes or things that look like mountains. Ticks abound in the spring. The Ski Bluewood area can be seen to the west.

I think the mountain might be named after the Misery Camp some few miles to the east (on FR-43). I passed by the remains of this camp. It was a Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) camp back in the 30's. Apparently in that one year it was in operation it was the biggest such camp in the West.
