XC Ski Tour  Sucess!

We took advantage of the low-elevation snow to XC ski from the parking lot all the way to the summit. The south route has a great grade for XC skis. The weather and snow conditions were pristine.
The one downer was the well-intentioned post-holer who followed our pristine track up, thus demolishing it for our run down.

Nice Summit Views  Sucess!

One of two summits on that day. Got done with this hike then Sally's Summit.

A decent workout  Sucess!

rainy at the bottom, snow at the top. No visibility today so nothing much to see at the top. Not that exciting but a good place to train when you don't have time to do an all day trip to snoqualmie pass, rainier, olympics, etc.

A hike with a view  Sucess!

Something to do when the weather is bad at higher elevations.

West 3 2 1?   Sucess!

Went up with Madelyn after being called off work. A little crowded for my liking, but we started late, so that was quickly fixed. A friend told me to go up West Tiger 3 to the summit, but the summit it wasn't! It was a bald outcropping covered with people and dogs (mostly cute, though)! After watching people dump gallons of water needlessly and birds being fed, we decided that it was time to find the true summit!

A slight descent from West Tiger 3, followed by a short gain, led to West Tiger 2. The summit was a microwave tower, so we weren't quite there yet. We saw a guy coming from the direction of what seemed to be the true summit and asked him where the true summit was. He asked a question back, "Which one, 1, 2, or 3?" He didn't even seem to know if he summited! The distinctions of peaks in these state parks is kind of goofy, with names giving directions and numbers before true details. Nevertheless, we found a dirt road to the top...to find a another microwave tower!

This one, though, had a view!

Great view of Seattle and the sound in one direction and the Cascades in the other!!! Well worth the fuss!

East Tiger  Sucess!

A nice easy road walk to a summit with some views towards the south. Bring your picnic lunch as there is a picnic table at the summit below the towers.

A Little Get Out  Sucess!

I think it was Nov. 27, oh well it doesn't matter that much. But it was a quick trip to the top, with views of trees and a tower.

Nice little walk  Sucess!

Can't remember the day... might have been in October actually... within the last two weeks. I'm really fuzzy on it for some reason.

East Tiger  Sucess!

I pretty much only snowshoe this when the driving is lame enough that you don't want to go far in winter.

To get out  Sucess!

Need a place to get out...go here. Don't go back.

a long wet New Year's Day  Sucess!

Be very careful on top in inclement winter weather as big pieces of ice get blown off those towers from way up that are very dangerous and could quite conceivably be fatal if you were standing in the wrong place at the wrong time. After the first round I felt like a soldier in wartime right after a bomb hit.

Much more strenuous as a New Year’s snowshoe than a summer road walk.

Inclement Weather  Sucess!

We decided to start the new year right with a cold, wet, windy snowshoe. Good company and good attitudes kept it fun. Alexei was hit in the head by a piece of falling ice from the towers on top. Thankfully he was not seriously hurt, but we wasted no time getting off the summit after this.
