My car is freaking awesome!
I parked at the bottom and walked to the top. Saw some deer on the way to the summit. Other than that it was a pleasant walk to a heavily covered summit.
Ryan and I drove up in thick ice fog after dark. Views extended all the way out to about 100 ft.
Rarely do I return to sites of successful summit attempts, especially via the same route. I made an exception in this case, so I could witness Bob Bolton becoming the third person to complete the Washington 25-Mile Isolation Peak list, the same day that we earlier summited Hog Ranch Buttes (another peak on that list) together.
Drove up here a windy March weekend when I was on call at work and didnt have anything better to do.
The only time I ever visited this one was when John Roper came to the area with Jeff Howebert. Of course it is a drive up so once was enough. We did about 5 others on the same day which made the day a lot of fun.
Although several other peaks (such as Badger Mountain and Red Mountain) near the Tri-Cities area appear to be taller from different angles, I was intrigued that this peak was the tallest around. Its isolation from higher peaks made it a viable option for us, and an outstanding summit viewpoint.
