Chief Mountain Trail  Sucess!

Hiked up the Chief Mountain Trail with Maria. Plenty of hikers on the trail. It's been unseasonably warm this November, so people were taking advantage of the weather. We could see a fire burning to the north: big flames, but it didn't seem to spread. We decided to climb up Papoose on the way back.

Chief Mountain Trail  Sucess!

Showshoe with Maria. There was plenty of snow, though it was thinner above treeline, thanks to the wind. We had light snow for most of the hike, and it was a little breezy above treeline. We tried going for Papoose on the way back, but snow on the rocks made footing difficult. Maybe some other time.

Chief Mountain Trail  Sucess!

CMC Trip. There were 4 of us. The original plan was to hike up Goliath Peak, but there was some S&R activity going on up there, so the trip was shifted to Mt Sniktau, but the weather was not supposed to cooperate, so we settled for the Chief Group. The weather was actually pretty good, almost too warm below treeline, and a little windy above. Still a fair amount of snow on the ground, but snowshoes were not absolutely necessary. We tagged Chief, then headed over to Papoose.

Standard Route Solo  Sucess!

Was heading up high to get some peaks but realized at the Evergreen exit my boots were sitting next to the front door! What an idiot! Decided to head up and do Chief, Warrior and Squaw Mnts knowing I could do them in sneakers on this sunny day. Some nice rocks on the tops of these peaks.
