Above The Clouds

Gimpilator sits near the top of Big Horn, the highest peak in Lewis County, Washington, as Mount Adams looms above the clouds in the background.

Re: Is there still a fire burning

We did not see a fire while we were there. The first day (Saturday) was a clear sky. We went up on a ridge adjacent to Cispus Basin and got a good look at the Mount Adams area (at least the east and north sides, that is). There was no smoke, then.

Re: Is there still a fire burning

Hmmm .. I'm wondering if the Dude's report
on the forum page was completely bogus.

He said it was started by lightning ..

Do you ever see lightning on ANY of your climbs ???

Re: Is there still a fire burning

Oh, definitely. Although Washington does not get as much lightning as most other States, but I have seen my fair share. I have even been chased off of a few mountains because of lightning. But with that said, by living here I tend to pick and choose the places to go based off of the weather forecasts.
