sun and snow  Sucess!

Got to make my own tracks for the last half mile or so to the summit. Nobody else up there on a fantastic morning.

Nice Easy Hike  Sucess!

I summited this Mountain many times when I was younger. I loved the lookout on top that was almost always open. One of the best lookouts I've seen.

First Washington Peak!  Sucess!

Was in Granite Falls for a family reunion and really wanted to climb a peak so I'm glad this was nearby. There was SO much snow left and TONS of people on the mountain! The view was incredible and well worth the short hike.

My Back Yard  Sucess!

W Erik  Sucess!

Our new local peak. First took Erik up there within first month in Washington- he was 1.5 years old. Nice hike - we are a little slower now that he and Owen want to walk.

First Summit  Sucess!

This was my first summit ever which I got to the top in winter at Sunset. Good times, good times.

In Snow is awesome  Sucess!

First time in the snow is great, you can shortcut directly across the slope. In '09 did it with a few friends after the snow was gone. The trail is fairly awesome I suppose.

Great Mountain  Sucess!

No 001, personal summit log.

Do this hike multiple times each year, great for training and it's closer to my house than anything else. Great views and environments near the top, and the Bathtub Lakes route is a hidden gem.

Personal best time: 1hr06min

Standard Trail  Sucess!

Beautiful day and great views from the summit. Trail still had snow after the halfway point. Lots of hikers.

Perfect Day  Sucess!

The first nice sunny day of the year was certainly the perfect occasion for a hike up Mt. Pilchuck. Gliders flew in the updrafts and the views were excellent. Still a lot of snow from about 4000 feet upwards.

2nd time  Sucess!

Dennis Poulin and I went up and enjoyed a beautiful day. Lots of snow and lots of people that were hiking in tennis shoes (wet feet). Great views on the summit due to the clarity of the air.

new local mtn  Sucess!

done it a couple times with kids and without.
Everett Mountain Rescue just installed 'wrong way' signs off the trail to discourage hikers from getting sucked down Kelly creek drainage.

Okay, there we go  Sucess!

After a few days of warmer temps, the ice softened up and the ascent was a lot easier. Saw a couple of solo gents, a skier, and a fellow with his enormous dog (Gunnar, the half-Lab, half-short haired collie), but they were it. Hung out in the lookout for lunch and tea, did some trash collecting, and headed down. Socked in all day until just above 4000' when we dropped below the cloud layer and could see the whole Sound and up into Canada. Lovely way to spend my birthday!
