After deciding to move on from Coldwater Peak. This trip was basically a trailed traverse on the Boundary. Snakes, frogs, and goats galore! There were a few snow patches in the last mile or so, but nothing too tough to negotiate. The small summit block was a fun scramble. From there, Maddie and I took the same route back to the Observatory. Long, rewarding day!
From Norway Pass trailhead. The east side of the mountain had a lot of snow to hike through to the summit. Great view of four volcanoes and love the view of Spirit Lake from here.
Did this one back in '06. I camped at Bear camp and climbed Whitter and Margaret the following day. Relatively easy climb with some great views of Spirit Lake and the mouth of St. Helens. All in all the weekend was an amazing trip.
Did Coldwater Peak earlier in the day and hiked the ridge over from there. As I sat at the summit munching, I was treated to an elk bugling from down below. I had seen one coming over and would run into one with a big rack on the way back. Truly a unique place.
