Foggy August Day  Sucess!

Spent an hour and a half tagging each of Elk's sub summits before reaching the true summit, an enjoyable easy hike. 50 minutes back to the car on the trail. Great views of the Deception Group, and presumably the ocean when clear

True Elk  Sucess!

Many wildflowers this time of year. Clusters of phlox looked like patches of snow on the mountainside. Fields of avalanche lilies along the road. Also two bears plus the usual suspects - deer and marmots

Making the most of the weather  Sucess!

Quick up and down of Obstruction, Elk and Maiden. Though the day started off foggy, at elevation there wasn't a cloud in the sky (except some puffies over Olympus). Lovely breeze, too, and not too much haze. Perfect day.

Nice!!!  Sucess!

This was an enjoyable hike. The weather was hot and there were no water sources to be found. Good thing I brought my own. I took a side-trip to summit this peak while in the middle of doing some recon and analyzing of neighboring mountain Obstruction Peak. Great views!!!

crystal clear skies  Sucess!

Baker and Raineir visible to the east, Victoria Island to the north and of course much of the breathtaking Olympic Range. Wildflowers in bloom this time of year, although not too many on Elk.

Nice hike  Sucess!

Went with my Father-in-law, sister-in-law and brother on a incredible summer day. As Stinkycheezman says, incredible views. Easy hiking.
